Our team is expanding again! We are proud to introduce Hanna Ala-Hongisto and Kaisa Kaitila, the latest experts to join us, starting as our new Scientific Project Managers.

Hanna and Kaisa both joined MedEngine’s Medical Affairs and Marketing team in June. Hanna holds an MSc in Biotechnology, and her expertise covers genomics as well as research focusing on breast cancer and mitochondrial diseases. Hanna’s endless curiosity led her to carry out simple experiments already at a young age and a career in biomedical sciences was an obvious choice for her. Nowadays, Hanna has a versatile background from both science and project management, and her easily excitable and social character suits the team perfectly.

“At MedEngine, I have a unique opportunity to combine my knowledge of biomedical sciences with customer communications while getting an up-to-date view of the state of pharmaceutical industry.”

Kaisa received her MSc degree in molecular and cell biology from University of Jyväskylä. A keen interest in pharma spurred her to educate herself about the field. As a result, she established a successful career in the pharmaceutical industry and medical affairs. Kaisa has worked in the field over a decade now and she has a comprehensive knowledge of medical affairs of respiratory therapy area and management of clinical vaccine studies. Kaisa feels passionate about contributing to the betterment of patient lives, and loves to learn about various diseases and their treatment options.

“I expect great possibilities for learning and self-development”, she says and continues “It is inspiring to work in a diverse, ambitious, and dynamic work community of professionals.”

It turns out, it wasn’t a quiet summer at all in our office. With both Hanna and Kaisa on our team, MedEngine is excited to launch the autumn with more skills, talented team members, and possibilities for carrying out successful turnkey projects for our customers.
