Years at Genentech

I started at Genentech in 1999 in what was then the Bioorganic Chemistry Department. I was attracted to Genentech based primarily on the people that were here, their enthusiasm for science, and the opportunity to work closely with world-class biologists. Since that time I have enjoyed the experience of working in many therapeutic areas (cardiovascular, oncology, immunology, and neuroscience) and on many different target classes including kinases, proteases, integrins, and ion-channels. In each project there have always been new and interesting challenges to overcome that has kept me curious about and engaged in the science of drug discovery.
