University Relations

In 2016, SCI joined forces with Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and together are training a biopharmaceutical and drug development workforce.

“This is a major milestone in the advancement of our vision to create a biopharmaceutical hub in Palm Beach County,” said Frederick D. Sancilio, Ph.D., founder, president and CEO of Sancilio & Company, Inc. “Having FAU and Sancilio working together to align the University’s focus with the growth of pharmaceutical research in the county will create new high paying jobs and enormous opportunities.”  

In 2016, our company added a robust intern program to allow students who completed courses at the university, to continue to hone their skills in a real-life pharma lab or research environment.  Students who come to intern at our organization can work hands on with some of the best in their area of expertise. Many of the students from our internship program are now Full-Time SCI employees.

SCI’s goal is to continue to innovate and inspire many students to seek careers in local regulated laboratories and thereby improve the viability of a biopharma industry in Palm Beach County.

In June 2017, SCI was the recipient of an LSSF Lifees award for Sancilio’s exemplary demonstration of commitment to the life sciences through its partnerships with students, faculty, and higher education.

In February 2017, Florida Govenor Rick Scott stopped by Sancilio & Company to discuss Enterprise Florida and employment within Florida.

SCI is headquartered in Riviera Beach, Florida, where we manufacture our products in FDA inspected cGMP facilities. We are conveniently located to the West Palm Beach area and employees come from all around South Florida.

While we employ highly committed and passionate scientists and doctors involved in the creation of preventative drugs and other products, we also have all the other divisions of the business including Operations, Business Development, Marketing, Sales, Distribution and other business functions. Our teams are proud of their brands, and are ready to go beyond what is needed to contribute to the Company’s success. We are looking to fill open positions with people who want to blazen their own career paths. Our employees are encouraged to shape their career path by alternating between various functions within the organization; we call it flexing. Beyond skills, SCI looks for people who have heart and passion for what they do. We believe that the Organization’s strength and ability to generate new ideas stem directly from our capacity for welcoming a wide range of profiles with all levels of experience.  

In addition to our scientific pursuits, SCI believes in being a part of the local community and actively participates in several municipal and charity organizations and events throughout the year. When we give back, we get back.


In 2015, SCI was awarded “Manufacturer of the Year” Award by the South Florida Manufacturing Association. Companies that win this award are “Role models in leadership and management processes, using approaches and systems that successful propel them in the future”.

    I have been working at Sancilio & Company full-time (More than a year)


    It is great to be involved in the company's mission to save one million lives. Every day at work we are helping to do research and development of products or manufacture nutrients to help sick people and their families. Employees are very passionate about being able to make a difference.


    Our mission requires a lot of hard work and focus, this can lead to very busy and some stressful days but overall it is worth it. The employees here are very committed and make a great team.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sancilio & Company (Riviera Beach, FL) in February 2016.


    The questions were easy, since I knew what is expected within the regulated industry. Some of the people who performed the interview had a bit of attitude. It was also noted that they did not like the interviewee to discover too much insight into the company. I think they like to get new employees in before showing the company's true colors.
