Let’s Talk About Antibodies, Baby!

To kick off Season 2 of “Science in the Mall, Y’all,” previous ACC Bioscience Incubator intern Mauricio Tellez is joined by another former ABI intern Marcia McCallum, who you might recognize from season 1. She is back to talk in-depth about the science that she does everyday as a Senior Lead in Upstream Processing at XBiotech. XBiotech develops and manufactures medications using antibodies. Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to understand what that means - listen to the full episode to get a more detailed run-down! 

Mauricio and Marcia interned together at ACC’s Bioscience Incubator, so it’s enlightening to hear them reconnect as working scientists and explore how the things they learned about as students and interns apply in the workforce. They reflect on their early days at the incubator and talk about the role that each other and their experiences at ABI has played in their professional development. Marcia shares some of the fun that comes with trial and error in the lab, and they talk about what they love about being working scientists. But it’s not all fun and games - Marcia and Mauricio get into the nitty-gritty of antibodies, proteins, and all of the high level science that they use everyday to contribute to creating life-changing therapeutics in the bioscience field. This is part one of a two-part conversation - tune into the next episode to hear more about Mauricio’s work as a clinical laboratory scientist!
