Apoorva Alva

Investigator at GlaxoSmithKline


I am an Investigator working in the Biopharm Downstream Purification Research and Development Group at GSK, based in Stevenage in the UK. I have worked at GSK for the past 3 years, developing and derisking purification processes for the manufacture and supply of early phase clinical trials. My experience has primarily been in the field of monoclonal antibody purification but has also extended to a few non-mAbs. Prior to starting at GSK I worked for 5 years at MedImmune, also in their Downstream purification group in the R&D team. I hold a Masters in Applied Biomolecular Technology from the University of Nottingham and a Bachelors in Biotechnology from Bangalore University, India.
