AIT Bioscience is expanding! As part of this growth we’ve added two new members to our team:
Qian Li began working for AITB as a Sr. Scientist II in our LC-MS/MS assay development and validation group. She is originally from China and received a master’s degree in organic chemistry there. She then received her Ph.D. in analytical chemistry at the University of Florida. After school, she spent several years at Quest Pharmaceutical Services before moving to Indianapolis and working at Dow Agrosciences as a scientist, GLP study director, and subject matter expert.
She has developed numerous methods in plant tissues, soils, and related samples to support the discovery and development of agricultural chemicals and products.
Dave Dehler recently joined AITB as a Business Development Director. Dave came to AITB from Smithers Avanza, where he spent the last 4 years driving growth in the toxicology services market, predominantly in the discovery to IND development phase, and then through Phase II, supporting chronic toxicology. Prior to Smithers Avanza, Dave has held business development positions for QPS (toxicology in Taiwan), Eurofins (global toxicology), Ricerca (toxicology, bioanalytical and medicinal/process chemistry) and Bridge/Gene Logic labs (toxicology and bioanalytical).
Dave began his career at then Hazleton Labs in VA (later became Covance), where he progressed from laboratory technical positions into lab management, Study Direction, Project/Resource Management, and client services/inside sales.
