I decided to join Genentech at 2006 as a scientist. What appealed me particularly to work at Genentech was the casual yet intense science-driven culture. Over the years, I led multiple disciplinary teams in driving projects towards deliveries into our pipeline of experimental therapies. It has been so much fun doing science together with super talented colleagues from all levels.

Today, I am a Principal Scientist and Project Team Lead, mentoring junior scientists and leading teams in discovering therapeutics of novel targets. What we are working on is often very challenging but we are fully motivated by patients who are waiting for breakthrough medicines.
