Devin Sarkady, Manufacturing Manager

"Like everyone else here, I wear many hats. In addition to managing the day-to-day activities of AustinPx’s GMP manufacturing programs, I oversee shipping and sourcing of controlled and uncontrolled raw materials for Operations. I also play a critical role in transferring and scaling up processes between Pharmaceutics and Manufacturing. What I love most about my job is the never-ending supply of challenges. It keeps my mind sharp and allows me to constantly learn new skills, and thus grow as a person. I joined AustinPx because my previous employer moved to California. I was thinking about moving back to the Northeast where I’m originally from and had offers to work with a several biotech companies.  A former colleague who had joined AustinPx, reached out and asked if I would be interested in interviewing. I jumped at the opportunity!  Joining AustinPx gave me the opportunity to work with some amazing people and to continue working in my chosen field while remaining in the area I love. So it was a win-win. After nine years with AustinPx, I continue to be inspired. I look forward to helping the company grow and to continuing to expand my understanding of drug product manufacturing, scale up and process optimization. "

Danny Davis, Associate Principal Scientist, TX Licensed Pharmacist

"During the last 2 years of my Ph.D. I had the opportunity to be an intern at AustinPx and work alongside the pharmaceutics group. In addition to the welcoming company culture, the opportunity to overcome bioavailability challenges for a range of drugs using their next-generation KinetiSol technology is why I joined the AustinPx team. I now work as a formulation scientist enabling the delivery of poorly water-soluble drugs by the KinetiSol technology and other solubility enhancement techniques, when appropriate. I love the ability to work with various clients and the task of solving some of the most challenging bioavailability problems in our industry. Each project's uniqueness requires me to expand my knowledge set and skills to apply the most efficient and effective approach; this continually motivates me to develop as a scientist. AustinPx allows me the opportunity to impact more patients than I could have ever imagined by allowing me to offer formulations solutions on a myriad of projects that enable drugs to progress through the clinical and, ultimately, approval."
