Dr. Padrós has 15 years experience in the Life Sciences industry. His last position was Technical Project Leader for Research and Development at Bio-discovery, PerkinElmer.
In this role, he led and managed all technical activities for the development of drug discovery and research reagents. Prior to joining PerkinElmer, Jaime held several positions of increasing scope and responsibilities at MDS Pharma Services. He has worked extensively in assay development in the areas of high-throughput screening (GPCR, kinases, epigenetics, proteases), biomarker detection and ADME-Tox.
Jaime received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in oceanography from the Université du Québec à Rimouski. He also holds the PMP certification from the Project Management Institute.
Christian joined BioSignal Packard in 1998 following a Master’s degree in molecular pharmacology at Université Laval in Québec where he studied atypical beta-adrenergic receptors.
His first tasks were to extend the GPCR membranes products line offering, develop related innovative HTS technologies and perform screening contracts. He then got involved with the AlphaScreen and LANCE technologies and worked on introducing new tools and kits like GSH beads and cGMP detection.
In more recent years, he was part of PerkinElmer’s OnPoint team, which executed over 80 biochemical and cell-based custom assay development projects for worldwide biopharma and academic customers. Some of these projects led to the introduction of innovative AlphaLISA assays in the field of Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s diseases.
Mireille brings 25 years of industrial laboratory experience in the development of cellular and biochemical assays.
