Alex’s role is to provide R & D solutions to support Quality, Manufacturing and Product Development functions. He and his team create solutions to assess the quality, efficacy and utility of Synthase products. Central to this is product trialling, where the R & D team lead the trialling and testing of product both here and offshore, supporting the commercial team to give our products the best chance of success.

With a keen interest in biotechnology, the Synthase technology ‘immediately captured my interest’, when looking for opportunities nearing the completion of his postdoctoral fellowship. Awarded his PhD by Waikato University in 2014, Alex has 15yrs experience in NZ CRIs and started with Synthase in 2016.

Alex brings sound scientific and experimental biology experience to the team, a team he describes as ‘highly skilled, cover a broad range of scientific disciplines, and are superb at problem solving’. Collaboration, external relationships and perspective are also important and ‘I enjoy been involved in this aspect of the Science, it’s important to test yourself’.

‘We work with a fantastic technology that has huge potential. Our products provide unique biological solutions and we’re committed to ensuring they are of the highest quality and functionality to ensure they stand out from the crowd’.
