"I am privileged to work with extremely talented scientists in a very collaborative environment at Genentech to bring therapeutic antibodies to the clinics that help patients."
I joined Genentech as a postdoctoral fellow at Department of Molecular Oncology, and joined department of Antibody Engineering in 2012. It has been an extremely rewarding experience working at Genentech because of exciting and high quality of science, productive multidisciplinary collaboration, and opportunities to help patients. At Genentech, I have been working with various disease areas to develop antibodies for therapeutics and research. It is very gratifying to see the molecules you help developed on entering clinical trials and potentially helping patients. I am extremely proud to be awarded Inventor of the Year in 2016 for helping identify a marketed, breakthrough cancer immuno therapy that is truly helping cancer patients.
I direct an Antibody Discovery Group at Department of Antibody Engineering. We discover and optimize therapeutic antibodies for multiple disease areas using cutting edge technologies. We worked closely with biologists to develop potential best-in-class and first-in-class antibody therapeutics, we worked closely with development science and CMC to select and optimize the best antibodies for their developability. We also support cutting edge science here at Genentech by developing tool antibodies to help dissect complex biology system.
