"Genentech's scientists and team spirit inspire me to go beyond my boundaries, this and the wish to apply my knowledge to ultimately help patients makes me come to work with a feeling of pride and purpose."
Years at Genentech
Awards & Honors

I felt attracted to Genentech because of its excellent scientific reputation. My experience had been about half and half academic and industrial, I gained expertise on protein NMR methods by determining multiple protein structures in solution in academia. I then moved to developing small molecule NMR methods in pharmaceutical drug discovery. At Genentech I strive to apply the two together to get the best of both approaches. I have not regretted my decision to come here for a single day.
