It was during my PhD in Pharmacology at UC San Diego that I found my desire to launch a biotech company. Amazed by the innovation in the local scene, I was itching to forge ahead – but I also knew that it would be wiser to learn the ropes of drug discovery and development first. With that in mind, I started my career working on small molecules for diabetes at Johnson & Johnson, and then continued that thread in a subsequent job with AstraZeneca way out east in Maryland. A return to San Diego brought me to Regulus Therapeutics, where my work on RNA therapies for serious diseases began. All of this experience fed into the next step in my career, the 2017 launch of DTxPharma. And that’s where the story of the FALCON platform began.
