Eric Sacia is a Principal Research Scientist in AbbVie’s Center for Reaction Engineering in the Small Molecules CMC organization. Within this group, he works on a variety of early-to-late stage drug development projects by evaluating novel chemistries and routes and scaling-up new processes, both internally and through third party manufacturers. He leads teams, including in late-stage development and has a passion for flow chemistry and novel process modeling methodologies. Prior to joining AbbVie, Eric received his B.S. from Ohio State University in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and then joined DuPont, where he focused on process development and scale-up of renewable monomers. Eric has been active as a leader in local chapters of the North American Catalysis Society, has mentored students at Drexel University through Senior Design, and was selected to the National Academy of Engineering’s Frontiers of Engineering Program.
