For three years, Amal worked for Roche in Razès (Haute-Vienne) at the
ARCoLab site, a laboratory dedicated to nuclear medicine and shared with
partner Orano Med. Starting out as a research coordinator, she went on
to become team leader.
From her very first day on the job, she was in daily interaction with Orano employees. “It was truly a sharing experience: we were all in the same boat”,
she recalls. In 2016, as Amal contemplated leaving the Limousin region,
Orano Med offered her a position as researcher. She was awarded a 100%
teleworking contract, which enabled her to spend more time with her
family, in Thonon-les-Bains.
In the new position, she became
responsible for pre-clinical animal experimentation activities at the
Orano Med animal facility newly opened in Texas. Her integration process
came about most naturally, as she already knew all the teams, and
especially the one in Bessines-sur-Gartempes, home to the Production and
R&D Centre, just a few kilometres from the ARCoLab. It was then
that Amal stepped into the world of radiochemistry.
