I joined Genentech in May 2000 as a Scientist contributing to the small molecule discovery effort. In 2003 I had the opportunity to join the Development Sciences department and learn about drug development. I am a Protein Scientist by training so was fascinated by our antibody therapeutic portfolio and was thrilled to be able to contribute to this effort. I am currently a Principal Scientist and Group Leader in the Assay Development and Technology group within the BioAnalytical Sciences department. The members of my team are integrated into various project teams and are responsible for development of assay strategies and methods to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK), anti-therapeutic antibodies as well as biomarkers to support our studies and enable filing of IND, BLA, NDA and related filings. Our focus is to provide data that will potentially enable development of novel therapeutics in both immunology and neuroscience therapeutic areas.
