I received my Ph.D. in 1997, training in the laboratory of Dr. William F. Dove and interrogating genetic regulators of tumorigensis in ApcMin mice. Following post-doctoral studies at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research in San Diego, I joined Abbott Laboratories in 2000 where I has held a number of positions and contributed to the development of inhibitors of Bcl-2 and PARP proteins for cancer therapy. I currently hold the position of Associate Director at AbbVie (spun off from Abbott in 2013) where I head a group focused on identification and validation of oncology targets for small molecule and biologics based drug development.
