Anika was already excited by chemistry when she was just 13 and loved mixing two solutions to produce something completely different. This fascination has stayed with her. To this day. In 2008, she joined NextPharma as a Laboratory Chemist – her dream job. Her passion was soon noticed and nurtured. She has been a Laboratory Manager since 2015, making sure that everything runs smoothly on a day-to-day basis. With an eye for the big picture, attention to detail and dedication in spades. And she is nurtured every step of the way: she obtained her instructor’s licence in 2016, which was fully funded by NextPharma. Since then, she has even developed her own training programme for laboratory chemists. For Anika, this is a further milestone in her career. After all, she wants to share her passion for this job with future generations.
