Living 10 Years in the Future

We live in an age of incredible scientific discovery. Scientists can now sequence entire human genomes in just hours. They can turn skin cells into heart cells and can create computer chips that mimic how the brain works.

If your goal is to pair this type of world-class science with real human impact, there is no better place in the world to be than Genentech.

Every day, our teams work to solve some of the hardest biomedical problems in the history of mankind, always with the goal of putting patients first. To do this, we become more than just scientists. We become explorers. We become pioneering drug discoverers.

And as drug discoverers, we are never afraid of the unknown. In fact, we are attracted to it. Being a scientist at Genentech means living 10 years in the future and discovering transformative medicines for the people who need them.
