The Power List 2016
Senior Scientist, Genentech, South San Francisco, California, USA
Passion: I am passionate about building/applying analytical technologies and strategies that have direct and crucial impact in drug research and development.
Pivotal moment: The approval of the cancer drug Cotellic is one of the pivotal moments in my career. It is really rewarding to see the science that my colleagues and I believed in and worked on for years to finally become a real medicine that saves people’s lives.
Prediction: Technology that needs no or minimum method development but can still provide comprehensive information of a sample in a short time is highly desirable. Multi-dimensional HPLC coupled with hyphenated detection technologies together with platform strategies is a pragmatic way to fulfill this goal in the coming years.
