In June, during a client visit to the Organix facilities, Russ Thomas interviewed Anu Mahadevan (CEO) and Paul Blundell (President) of Organix, our new organization in Woburn, just outside Boston Massachusetts. Russ wanted to introduce Anu and Paul to the rest of the Symeres family and find out more about them and what makes Organix so successful.
Organix solves problems. We work in all areas of chemistry, but our main goal is to solve a client’s problem. We conduct a range of services, including organic synthesis; extraction and isolation of natural products; analytical methods in all areas; RAFT polymerization; drug conjugation; and SAR work in all areas, including lipids. If you provide the problem, we will find the solution.
Our employees. The diversity and range of expertise. We have taken care in selecting them from the get-go. We have interviewed every one of them personally. We have grown the company to 45 employees and have provided the tools and resources for them to perform cutting-edge, demanding research for our clients. We help our employees live the American dream.
The teamwork and enthusiasm for chemistry. Our culture is one of inclusivity, and this is demonstrated in how our staff help each other, either in staying late to add a sample to the HPLC sequence queue for a colleague or just being there for someone to give them a ride to their mechanic at lunchtime.
Symeres very much has the same enthusiasm for science as Organix does, and this has shown in our interaction at both the upper management level and the mid management level. The response from Symeres clients has always been positive when referring to Symeres.
The exchange of ideas from each facility and new learning possibilities. We look forward to hosting fellow scientists from Europe and are glad to have the opportunity to send our workers to Europe to learn new skills, such as parallel synthesis techniques and scale-up techniques.
