"Genentech is a great place to do drug development – we test novel therapeutics for serious diseases and take an integrated approach to clinical development that is driven by a strong commitment to scientific integrity."
Years at Genentech

I did my PhD in Neuroscience at UCSF and then started at a small company using C. elegans to discover new drug targets for neuropathic pain. That company was subsequently acquired by Celera Genomics where I continued to work in drug discovery across several therapeutic areas. After Celera, I moved further toward the clinic, leading the preclinical and biomarker development for a Btk inhibitor at Pharmacyclics. I joined Genentech in 2009 to return to Neuroscience and focus on biomarkers.
