Core values


We do what's right even if it's harder. Why? Success without integrity equals failure. That means we like to win, not cheat or cut corners.

Innovate and Create

The mainstream just isn't for us. We're constantly thinking outside of the circle and finding creative and innovative approaches to everyday problems.


People First

Growth happens on every level.  We are firm believers in "People over Policy" and ensuring that everyone feels supported in their personal and professional growth.

Work Hard, Play Harder

We have a "Die on the Treadmill" mentality and a "Wineglass Half-full" philosophy. We value commitment and positivity in every approach.

Anthony Aukskalnis

Director of Talent Acquisitions

I graced the clinical research world at Atrium Health with my unparalleled charm and wit for 4 magical years. While working, I somehow earned a Masters from Johns Hopkins that they cannot legally take back; I’ve locked it in a triple coded safe regardless. I was introduced to Biotech Partners at a biotech conference in Raleigh, NC and quickly realized we had a shared passion for connecting world-class talent with industry leaders.

Kyla Scully

Office Operations Manager

On a daily basis, I find myself wondering how such a hip EDM loving person would end up the babysitter of so many adult-children at Biotech Partners.  I recently graduated from UNCC (1.5 yrs is recent, right?) with a degree in psychology.... which let’s be honest I find myself putting it to good use with this group.  My passions are as follows:  traveling, snuggling my kitties, finding killer deals on fancy threads, and most importantly keeping the boys in the office from chasing butterflies. I’m re-cranking my education engine in the fall in order to delve further into the world of biotechnology by continuing my studies at UNCC (mostly so I can keep “recent graduate” on my LinkedIn page). My day to day is filled with helping our clients find the best talent as well as growing Biotech Partners network and cleaning up after the boys in the office. Biotech Partners has given me the opportunity to grow myself and make a difference in the lives of others through the industry.
