Years at Genentech
Awards & Honors

I completed a combined MD-PhD program at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1998 and an Anatomic Pathology Residency and Autopsy Fellowship at Stanford University Hospital in 2001. During my last year at Stanford, I began a postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Richard H. Scheller and in 2001, moved with the laboratory to Genentech, where I investigated endocytosis and intracellular trafficking of cell surface receptors targeted by cancer therapeutics and armed antibodies. I completed the fellowship in 2005 and joined the Department of Pathology at Genentech, where I have since been providing collaborative pathology support for a variety of pipeline research and development programs and academic-focused projects in basic science, mostly in the areas of Immunology and Infectious Diseases.
