Although a gruelling experience, Eva says the journey served an
“ When you push this hard every day, you really learn
something about your body and your mind.”
The trip taught Eva about her ability to problem solve and her
propensity to organize. Through road cycling she’s also learned about
her mental resolve and the importance of having goals and never giving up.
It’s these characteristics that she applies every day to her other
passion as a pilot scientist at Novo Nordisk.
Over the last three years with Novo Nordisk, Eva has overseen the
upscale production of medicine from the laboratory to a pilot plant.
It’s a career which has been decades in the making after her mother,
who also worked for Novo Nordisk, first brought Eva to the company’s
headquarters when she was just two months old.
As the years progressed, a young Eva would develop a love for nature
and animals, interests that would eventually lead her to biotechnology
– and Novo Nordisk.
“ What I like most about working in Novo Nordisk is the
scientific challenges that I get,” says Eva.
“ When you upscale production, you don’t know how the product
or the filtration will react. It’s a really interesting process
because you always have to come up with a different solution.”
