Brandy Sargent - EditorBrandy Sargent – Editor and chief

As editor and frequent author of The Downstream Column, I strive to introduce topics that are interesting, thought provoking, and possible starting points for discussion by the community. I have worked in the biotechnology industry for over ten years, first in corporate communications and public relations, then in technical sales and marketing, and most recently as a consultant. I was fascinated by the different applications of biotechnology when I first started working in the industry and continue to be fascinated as my experience and exposure has grown. I hope that I can share my enthusiasm with blog readers and invite you to share your expertise and experience so the community can thrive and these important applications of cell culture can deliver on their promise for biomedicine and human health.
