I transitioned to Genentech in 2004 to extend my research focus from invertebrate genetics of developmental pathways to signal transduction biology in mammalian cancer models. Previously I led a C. elegans genetics group at Exelixis that identified novel regulators in several signaling pathways. At Genentech, a critical mass of talented scientists and extensive resources provide for a collaborative research environment that enables discovery of novel molecular mechanisms driving human diseases and translation of these discoveries into targeted therapies. I am inspired by my daily interactions here with like-minded scientists driven by a passion for discovery and commitment to translating a deeper understanding of biological processes into novel disease therapies.
