Years at Genentech
Awards & Honors

I am a Senior Scientist/Toxicologist in the Safety Assessment Department. I serve as the nonclinical lead or project toxicologist for several ocular projects in research or early development with a focus on long acting delivery strategies.

Prior to joining Genentech in late 2013, I contributed to the nonclinical development of therapies for rare pediatric skeletal diseases, from early stage research to market application.

My PhD and postdoctoral works focused on bone biology from osteoclast biology to mesenchymal stem cell differentiation.
