Awards & Honors

I am a Senior Scientist and Project Team Leader in our small molecule drug discovery group. I was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland, and obtained my MSci and Ph.D. degrees in chemistry from the University of Strathclyde. In 2005, I joined Professor K.C. Nicolaou’s laboratory at The Scripps Research Institute as a Fulbright scholar, before starting my industrial career in 2006 with AstraZeneca in their Respiratory and Inflammation group. When I joined Genentech in 2010, I was excited by the opportunity to do leading-edge research with world class biologists and drug hunters.
