Meet Praveena



At Bio-Rad, we pride ourselves on providing opportunities for employees to develop their careers and take on new challenges. Just ask Sr. R&D Manager, Praveena Garimella, who has worked on a number of exciting projects in different roles since joining Bio-Rad in 2012.  

“I first visited Bio-Rad while as a post-doctoral at UC Berkeley,” Praveena says, “and I was very impressed by the Bio-Rad campus, different people I met during my visit, and the fact that Bio-Rad seemed to have a great work culture.” She was hired as a Senior Scientist in the Bio-Consumables R&D group and later became part of a newly created Chemistry group that set up a new Synthetic Chemistry lab at Bio-Rad's Hercules campus.  

Praveena has also held roles as a Staff Scientist and Sr. Staff Scientist, during which she worked on the introduction of Bio-Rad's Star-bright Product line for Western Blotting and Flow Cytometry applications. While her career has taken many exciting turns, she says one of the constant joys she has is working alongside people who feel like family.  

"One of the cool things about Bio-Rad is that it’s like a big communal family here,” she says. “If there’s something you don’t understand or are curious about, people are very approachable and friendly. So just ask and you’ll find someone and you may learn a new skill.”
