Ashok Bandaranayake

Dir. Bioprocess Development
Optide Program, Fred Hutch Cancer Center

Dr. Bandaranayake earned his undergraduate degree in biochemistry (UC Davis) and his PhD in immunology (University of Washington, Seattle) in order to achieve his goal of developing therapeutics. He was introduced to automation at Albert Einstein College of Medicine where he was a Faculty member working for the New York Structure Consortium and immediately saw the power of harnessing automation in the drug discovery and development process. He then moved to the Fred Hutch to design and develop his own automated pipeline for protein production, antibody development and immuno-oncology assays.

Jonas Angstenberger

Senior Scientist II - Head of Process Automation & Data Science
AbbVie Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG

Jonas Angstenberger studied biology and finished his PH.D. in basic medical research at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry / University of Constance. His first position in the pharmaceutical industry was a two year trainee program in drug development at AbbVie. During the trainee program in DMPK, Bioanalysis, QA and New Biological Entities (NBE) in Germany and the US he focused on automation and data handling. In 2016 he took over the newly formed group within the NBE formulation department responsible for automation and data science. He is focusing on implementing the fully integrated automation line evolving it to intelligent automation by combining automation with new concepts of data handling.
