Years at Genentech
Awards & Honors

I joined Genentech in 2015 as a Scientist in Clinical Pharmacology following a few years at another pharmaceutical company. I was drawn to Genentech because of the company’s scientific reputation, outstanding leadership and brilliant scientists. Genentech is a place where I can challenge myself and learn something new every day, both from my projects and my very talented peers.

In my short career at Genentech I have had the privilege of contributing towards several drug filings and approvals in the US and around the world.
