What I love about APT is the collaborative environment. All members of the team are more than willing to help another out, creating a family-like environment where everyone is supported.” Marty Lee, Microbiologist II

“APT allows me to strengthen my qualities as a scientist and a team-worker. Such a collaborative environment propels the success of the company and my growth as an individual. Notably, working at APT has introduced me to avenues of science that were previously unknown, broadening my mind to the bigger picture of the biotech industry.” Bryce Walker, Microbiologist I

Working at APT and living around the Frederick/Gaithersburg area has opened my eyes to all that Maryland has to offer! I enjoy the close proximity to Seneca State Park and several other recreational activities. Being a short drive from downtown Frederick and venues like the RIO Washingtonian area allow me to keep engaged in my social (covid-friendly) life in the biotech corridor!” Viet Dang, Microbiologist II

< “We build therapies to clear multidrug resistant infections, with the end goal being to produce as many therapies as possible that have the potential to save lives. Having the opportunity to see that our hard work really does pay off and it’s making a difference right now, that’s unique to Adaptive Phage Therapeutics.“  Bri’Anna Horne, Clinical Coordinator/Microbiologist

Working at APT is like working with family. Coming into work every day, you get to say hello and talk to everyone from the higher executives to the microbiologists in the lab. The open communication really fosters a sense of community, learning, and passion for the work that we are doing. Not only that but, the value of our work is immeasurable – we get the chance to actually see the impact we have on patients and have a direct and lasting effect on each and every person.” Anjna Nair, Microbiologist I
