Kathleen Martin, Ph.D.Kathleen Martin, Ph.D. Project Team Leader

My Focus and Background

I lead drug discovery research teams that develop new treatments to enable people to live longer and healthier lives. These teams include both Calico employees and those of our external partners.

My scientific training is in neurobiology. Prior to joining Calico, I held roles in program leadership, management, and strategy in several neuroscience-focused biopharma startups (Renovis, Synosia and Biotie). I have drug development experience extending from target discovery to late-stage clinical development, including drug-device combinations and digital medicines (Proteus Digital Health). I am particularly passionate about optimizing cognitive functioning through the lifespan.
