    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse Overview
    I have over 10 years in licensing and business development experience that includes building significant research collaboration and licensing partnerships between academia and the life sciences industry. I also have significant interest and experience in starting venture backed companies based on university technology.

    I did my Ph.D. in Biological Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University in the lab of Jon Minden, studying the role of programmed cell death in Drosophila embryonic development. I also have a B.S. in Cell and Structural biology (with honors) from the University of Illinois where I did neuroscience research.

    My roles at UCSF include licensing, facilitating UCSF based start ups, negotiation of IP language in collaboration agreements and MTA's, faculty engagement to learn about the commercial relevance of their research and to educate them on what makes a "good invention" and building new relationships with industry and early stage investors. My focus areas include diagnostic and therapeutics but I also work with some software and medical device technology.
