How Benchling helps scientists track and organize RNAi design during therapeutics R&Ds

In our eBook, “Has Life Science R&D Moved Beyond Traditional LIMS”, we discuss the capabilities that Benchling shares with many LIMS and highlight where Benchling can deliver more value to your lab than a typical LIMS.

Tell us more about why you decided to study life science during university.

Madison: I’ve been intrigued by life sciences from a young age, which I accredit mainly to growing up in Hawai’i – there’s a huge focus on environmental science, marine biology, and geology here. It made sense to start undergrad studying environmental science and psychology at Santa Clara University, but I quickly developed a passion for neuroscience and pursued a B.S. in that field instead. The wet labs and hands-on experience from foundational life sciences courses at SCU were crucial for my explorations of psychology; I looked at the brain and behavior with a new perspective — I learned more about how and why we behave the way we do through biology and chemistry.

Why did you decide to get into sales versus sciences as a career?

M: My parents have careers in business (consulting, sales operations), so I always had an interest in the area but knew I wanted to study life sciences while in school. I figured I could eventually return to school for an MBA if I wanted to further develop my professional business career, especially after getting relevant experience in the field. Before counting out research as a life path, though, I started research at the Systems Neuroscience and Pain Lab at Stanford University’s School of Medicine where I studied the relationship between decision making and pain in both healthy and chronic pain patients. This experience was crucial in determining my path into sales because while I loved hands-on research and running experiments daily, I realized that I loved talking to people and needed to pursue a customer or person-facing role. Biotech sales seemed like the perfect intersection of life sciences and business strategy so I started looking into sales opportunities.
