My name is Adam Wilson and I am THE
BioPharmGuy. Often on the site I use the royal we, but this is a one-man show except for the logos. Web development, database improvement, page changes, articles, marketing - everything.
I have a BSE in Chemical Engineering ('02) and a Masters in Pharmaceutical Engineering ('06) both from the University of Michigan. I have the following professional experience:
- Process Development Engineer at Biopure, a biotechnology company in Cambridge, MA that produced polymerized bovine hemoglobin for oxygen-delivery
- Investigator at the FDA Detroit District Office
- Lab technician in a hospital immunology lab focusing on lymphoma, doing molecular biology work (4 publications)
- Intern at Abbott Labs in downstream technical operations supporting Humira manufacturing
While in graduate school, my job search was well regimented in that I created elaborate bookmark files and visited company career pages weekly. This worked so well that I wanted to give others the ability to do their job search in a similar way.
So in April of 2008, I launched the site. It has since become more than a hobby as spousal work considerations led me to relocate to a biotechnology backwater in the Midwest.
I am self-taught in everything website-related, so as you can (hopefully) see I've come a long way. The site will never be flashy, but it doesn't need to be. It's for people who want to find either jobs or information. On July 1, 2012, I launched a new, more modern look which I hope you like.
To keep the site updated, I check all the external links just about once per month to ensure they are working. I also read industry publications such as GenEngNews and browse online news to find new companies to add to the database.
My site is without question the best free online database for career pages in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries. Some of my older competitors were good in their time, but they are not updated very much, if at all. They have defunct companies littering their database and no one else links directly to career pages as simply and easily as BioPharmGuy. This is definitely the place for job seekers.
I am always willing to answer any questions about advertising, marketing deals, job searches, etc, so if you have any please send me an email
or through the contact
submission form. I personally respond to every email and submission.
