I joined Genentech in 2011 and led the development of software infrastructure which continues to underlie much of our company’s gene expression research. In 2014 I began collaborating with the Neuroscience department to study the role of non-neuronal cells (“glia”) in neurodegenerative diseases, with a particular emphasis on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. We combine human genetics, gene expression and other types of data to identify and understand novel therapeutic targets and biomarkers.

At Genentech I have access to both industry-leading databases and information systems as well as world-class neuroscientists with whom I collaborate to develop and test hypotheses emerging from these data. This highly collaborative research environment is an exciting place to do science.
