What Our People Say

Dr Runi Ganguli


I have worked at the Biology department at Charles River for over 10 years on many different types of projects with many different clients.   CRL has allowed me to have a good work life balance which has really helped with raising my two children.  More recently due to changes in my family circumstances I have wanted to pursue more project leadership roles and CRL has provided mentoring and support to allow me to learn these new skills.  CRL does try and support scientists aspirations and provide the training and support so that you are able to succeed in your role.  Due to the different types of projects that CRL works on you are able to expand your scientific skills and knowledge.  CRL also has scientific expertise on a number of different sites so you are able to reach out to other colleagues to help with any challenges.  I have found that CRL does listen to the needs of the employees and for me, this has really helped me grow as a scientist and feel more confident on taking more challenging roles.
