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.
