"Genentech's stimulating environment and opportunities to advance my career really attracted me here. I'm so excited to work with so many of the brightest and most innovative scientists to develop new treatments for some of the most difficult-to-treat diseases - all while positioning myself for personal success and staying competitive at the forefront of medical technology."
I received a MD and MS degrees from China, then conducted Postdoc training at UCSF followed by working at Oakland Children’s Hospital as a Research Chemist. I joined the PKPD Dept. of Genentech in 1996. Currently I’m a Senior Scientist in the PKPD Dept.
I serve as a key scientific and strategic leader, driving the investigative PKPD effort in support of discovery and development of protein therapeutics. I also identify and investigate key scientific issues related to the ADME and PKPD of exciting and novel drug candidates in the areas of BioOncology, Immunology, and Infectious Disease areas. I am responsible for developing novel scientific tools to understand factors that affect the disposition of mAbs including mAbs, ADC, TAC and leverage it for the selection and development of therapeutic candidates.
