I started at Genentech in 2009 after a PhD in organic chemistry at Stanford. At Genentech I primarily work on antibody-drug conjugates for the treatment of cancer and infectious disease.

Postdoctoral Mentor

Genentech is a fantastic place to do translational research. We work in a highly collaborative environment with unparalleled resources and an emphasis on innovation. This enables post docs and their mentors to engage in addressing some of the most difficult scientific problems.
