Patricia McNeill joined Lundbeck Seattle BioPharmaceuticals, Inc. in October 2019 as part of the acquisition of Alder Biopharmaceuticals. As Associate Director of Cell Culture Development, she has overseen the successful upstream process development for early to late stage cell culture and fermentation processes producing therapeutic monoclonal antibodies.
She was hired as the 10th employee at Alder and has since held progressive leadership roles including the build-out and expansion of the research development lab for yeast fermentation. As Alder grew and new production platforms were needed, Patricia was tasked in establishing a CHO cell culture platform from the ground up. Prior to Alder, Patricia worked at Corixa Corporation where she was responsible for production of E. coli antigens used in cancer vaccine therapies. Her passion is using Design of Experiment (DOE) studies to decrease Cost of Goods (COGs), increase process efficiency, and robustness, and speed up development timelines.
