Michelle Dennis MilliporeSigma

Michelle Dennis joined MilliporeSigma in May of 2015, and has been the QC Microbiology specialist in NC for the last 5 years. She is responsible for supporting pharmaceutical microbiology laboratories within North Carolina on their methods for sterility, bioburden testing, environmental monitoring and pyrogen testing. She works closely with QC Microbiology lab managers and their teams in NC and enjoys identifying areas where she can simultaneously enhance efficiency and compliance in the lab and establish partnerships between the client and vendor. Michelle received her Bachelors of Science in Microbiology from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2006. Michelle has found the PDA to be very helpful in her career, and she enjoys connecting microbiologists that are not currently aware of the PDA to its’ resources and community. She shares PDA news and events with those within the industry, and sees huge opportunity for engagement among pharmaceutical microbiologists in NC. Continued education, shared best practices, mentorship, and diversity within our field are important principles that Michelle can help contribute to as a Board Member-at-Large.
