After I got my Ph.D. from McArdle with V. Craig Jordan in 1984, I was a post-doc at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. I then joined the biotech company Immunex as a molecular biologist and worked there for 14 years. I left when Amgen acquired Immunex, and have been consulting since 2004 for biotech and pharma companies. I cloned and/or identified many important growth factor genes during my 14-year tenure at Immunex, including the ligands for the c-kit, flt3, and elk tyrosine kinase receptors, a ligand for CD7, as well as the human growth factor TSLP. I also served as the Director of Extramural Research at Immunex for four years, during which time my group managed more than 2,500 research collaborations with over 1,000 academic investigators worldwide. This experience has led to my teaching the art of collaboration to numerous academic and industry groups. I hold 26 U.S. patents, have authored or co-authored 130 scientific publications, and am a monthly contributor of op-ed pieces on research and biotechnology for the national Xconomy website.
