Carol has extensive experience as a biologist in the biotechnology industry. Writing detailed Standard Operating Procedures for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) compliant facilities was part of the process of assuring testing would be performed using consistent techniques across the batches of product manufactured. Technical reports were also required to summarize experimental techniques used and results found when new processes were developed or transferred to the testing or manufacturing facility. These documents were retained at the facilities with copies made available to clients. These documentation policies were essential to the effective implementation of GMP.
As an academic instructor and researcher, Carol produced research reports to justify research expenditures as well as syllabi which served to formally provide students and department members with written information regarding course content and expectations of student performance.
