Lab technician apprentice supporting COVID-19 vaccine manufacturing

Emilia Reyes Pabon has been an apprentice at the University since September 2018, working as a an Apprentice Operations Technician in the Clinical BioManufacturing Facility (CBF). By working in this area, Emilia has been exposed to unique experiences and has learnt a variety of new skills, which align with her Level 3 Laboratory Technician Apprenticeship with CSR scientific training.




The CBF has played a pivotal role in the development of the COVID-19 Vaccine, which Emilia is proud to be part of. More information about Emilia's work can be seen on the Advanced therapies Apprenticeship community page.



The highlight of my apprenticeship so far is being part of the manufacture of our ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine. We all as a team have put in lots of hours and dedication to ensure the vaccine was manufactured in a record time while maintaining high quality standards and ensuring patient safety throughout all the processes, and we take pride in that.
