Hello! I'm Shirin Lutfiya from India. I hold a bachelor’s degree in biotechnology and a master’s degree in Biopharmaceutical Engineering from University College Dublin. I've worked as a production trainee in a medical device start-up and a subject matter expert in an EdTech company in India. Soon after my Master's, I completed Validation Training programme with Innopharma and joined Eli Lilly, where I currently work as a C&Q Engineer under Requalification department. I love painting acrylic natural landscapes and watching movies in my free time.
Parmeet Singh Oberoi
I am a Master’s in Pharmaceutical Business and Technology graduate from Griffith College Dublin. I also hold a degree in Bachelor of Pharmacy from India. Currently, I am working as a QA validation consultant in Regeneron contracted through Innopharma Technology Limited. I have previously worked as a Quality Control Assistant and completed my internships in a hospital pharmacy and in a pharmaceutical manufacturing industry. I always wanted to explore various domains within the pharmaceutical industry, and I believe that validation is the ideal career for me where I am looking forward to learning and growing within the industry. In my free time, I like to work out and indulge in gaming activities. I also like to read and keep myself updated with the current trends.
Hi, my name is Ashma Achhami, hailing from the beautiful nation of Nepal. Throughout my early years, I battled with self-doubt, underestimating my own abilities despite excelling in studies and harbouring immense potential. However, I am proud to say that I worked on myself and overcame these challenges so far.
Currently, I am working as a QA Validation Consultant at Regeneron, working through Innopharma technical services and I hold a level 9 post graduate diploma in pharmaceutical business and technology from Innopharma education/Griffith college.
I always dreamt of making my career in that sector where I could help people and make a positive impact utilizing my passion for science. This satisfies me and I believe it makes my life meaningful. So, I pursued Bachelor’s in science with a major in chemistry in Nepal. Later, I joined a Master's in chemistry to continue my studies. Although my master’s studies were interrupted by the COVID, I chose to pursue an abroad study option and completed Pg diploma in Ireland. This was followed by the transformative three-month work simulation training program in validation from Innopharma technical Services, which enhanced my knowledge, personal growth and ultimately paved the way to secure my current job.
Previously, I worked briefly as a sales manager and a part time high school science
Teacher in Nepal but had no experience in the pharmaceutical industry. Today, I successfully secured my career as a validation engineer. As a full-time, I enjoy spending my free time listening to music, spending time with loved ones, and exploring new places.
My determination, along with the continuous support of Innopharma team has played a vital role in my journey thus far.
