As a PTL, I lead cross-functional teams for programs that have transitioned from early discovery research towards therapeutic development. I focus on program strategy, science-based decision-making and working collaboratively with our industry and academic partners to advance these programs.
I came to Calico from Pfizer/Rinat where I was a Development Director, guiding drug development across multiple therapeutic areas and modalities. Prior to that I was an Assistant Professor at UCSF where I worked on FAK signaling and cell-matrix-cytoskeletal interactions. Before that I was a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Louis Reichardt at UCSF.
