PODCAST: From Lab Tech to Providing Vital Support for COVID-19 Response
Friday, Oct. 30, 2020 -- In this episode of Occupation Station, which we produce for Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, we discover how Dr. Kelly Cycon went from lab tech to director of the virology department at Zeptometrix.
During her years there, the company has also grown and evolved and currently ZeptoMetrix is providing support for the COVID-19 response.
Dr. Cycon’s career journey involved a leap into a graduate program, many miles traveled on I-90, and a willingness to be flexible! She also credits support from family, teachers and colleagues. Now Dr. Cycon mentors students and says scientists have a responsibility to pass the torch and impart knowledge and encouragement to students who are considering entering the field.
