Enjoy this brief interview with Tyler Thompson, Quality Assurance Administrator at ArunA Bio. Thompson received a Bachelor’s degree in Education and Biology as well as a Master’s degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Bowling Green State University. Dendreon is a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company and a pioneer in the development of immunotherapy.

For over twelve years, ArunA manufactured and provided neural stem cells to the world’s leading research organizations with unrivaled uniformity and scale.

Today, ArunA is advancing a new class of cell-free biologics, exosomes, for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders and leveraging our novel platform to optimize the delivery of RNAs, antibodies, genes and small molecules for our partners.

As Quality Assurance Administrator, Thompson describes his primary responsibility as making sure every therapeutic given to a patient is the exact same dose, concentration, and size profile.

When asked what advice he’d give someone interested in working in the life sciences industry, Thompson replies, “Find someone who works in biotech and ask them what they like about their job. Then, don’t listen to their answer. Look at their face,” he smiles.

A big thank you to Tyler Thompson for participating in our “Careers in Life Sciences” series, and thank you to ArunA Bio. We at Georgia Bio are proud of the work they do to make Georgia a leader in the biosciences industry.
