"Each day we work to extend and improve lives."
I joined the Discovery Chemistry department at Genentech as a Medicinal Chemist in 2005. I was drawn to Genentech because of the palpable passion and energy for science and discovering medicines based on scientific discovery. That passion and energy continues today. I enjoy being part of a group that pursues medicines for many different therapeutic areas, and across different modalities.

As a chemist, my work can focus on designing drugs directed to whatever target is most compelling from a biological point of view without being confined to a particular therapeutic area. Each program brings unique scientific challenges and a need to innovate to discover new medicines.
