Years at Genentech
Awards & Honors

I came to Genentech in 2006 after completing a postdoctoral fellowship in mouse cancer genetics and genome engineering in the joint laboratory of Drs. Neal Copeland and Nancy Jenkins at the National Cancer Institute, Frederick, Maryland.

Trained in classic and molecular mouse genetics, I was attracted to Genentech by the opportunity to be able to apply genetic tools and genetically engineered murine models to facilitate drug discovery.

Genentech is an exciting and very collaborative place, striking that perfect balance between basic scientific discovery and drug development.

Postdoctoral Mentor

The postdoctoral program at Genentech provides a unique and exciting training opportunity where the postdoc can take advantage of a wide range of in-house resources, expertise and core facilities. Specifically, a postdoc in my laboratory can take advantage of in-house expertise in mouse genome engineering, animal model generation and advanced cell line engineering and apply this to facilitate scientific and drug discovery. In addition he/she can explore the power of genetics in model systems using innovative combinations of genetic tools and latest genome engineering technology.
