Welcome to SAM Nordic, Emma!

Welcome to SAM Nordic, Emma!

SAM Nordic expands its Medical Affairs team with two new stars, first up Emma von Witting!

Hello Emma! So great to have you with us. How did you end up at SAM Nordic?

Thanks! So great to finally be here! I had a chat with the recruiter responsible for the position and was intrigued by how she described the company as very agile and innovative. Also, I have been working in the theragnostic field before but in an academic lab setting, and I felt like the time had come to take a step out of the lab and deliver patient value in another setting.

What do you bring to the table?
I am an engineer with a background in academic research where I have focused on the design and development of a small protein domain for both radio imaging and therapy. I bring with me a research perspective and expertise regarding specifically peptide- and protein-based pharmaceuticals which I believe are already on their way to transforming the entire industry.

So far, what is your impression of SAM Nordic as a company?
I have only been here for a few days but I am already blown away by the fantastic people and the high energy around here. I love the collaborative environment and it seems to be a very open-minded atmosphere.

What do you look forward most to, in the coming months, working at SAM Nordic?
To take a step out into “reality” and complement my research background with a more patient-centered and clinical perspective.

What is the most valuable thing you learned, so far, in your career?
To keep a positive attitude, when there is a will, there is always a way!

Where will you mostly be found, when not at work?
Spending time with my husband and two small kids, perhaps sailing in the Stockholm archipelago if the weather allows it (or fixing things on the boat during the winter season…).
