Jae Chang

Senior Scientist, Drug Metabolism & Pharmacokinetics

Years at Genentech

My training is in drug transporters and pharmacokinetics, but I wanted to increase the breadth of my knowledge to get a more complete understanding of how drugs are absorbed, distributed, metabolized and excreted in the body. Therefore, to complement my background, I started my career at Genentech in 2009 in the department of Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics in the in vitro metabolism group. Here, I not only worked with existing in vitro assays, but developed novel assays and approaches to support programs.

After gaining valuable experience to achieve a more comprehensive insight into how the body processes drugs, my role transitioned to become a member of various multi-disciplinary teams focused on driving programs in different stages of R&D. I have been fortunate to work with numerous teams to identify clinical candidates in the preclinical stage and to follow their progression in the clinic.
