Company: AstraZeneca, Early Oncology TDE

Job title: Team Leader & Lead Bioscientist


I am a team leader and lead bioscientist in the Early Oncology TDE group at AstraZeneca and have worked across a wide variety of projects within our small molecule and biologics oncology portfolio. Over the last 5 years I have been focused on drug discovery projects which directly target Ras1 and was significantly involved in a collaboration which developed a potent and selective next-generation clinical KRAS antisense oligonucleotide 2, 3. More recently I have been working on developing small molecule targets of oncogenic Ras.
