    Summary:
    I have 23 years in pharmaceutical and biotechnology research and development. I have taken LGD-4665, Ligand Pharmaceuticals' first internal clinical candidate in 10 years, from an idea with no project plan to the clinic in less that one year, primarily by keeping a tight focus on the goals of the project and making sure the all involved knew the what the data was telling us. I have authored multiple patents, 4 in my last corporate job at Vertex Pharmaceuticals, with more being written. I have supported many basic research programs that have led to pre-clinical and clinical programs. My expertise includes drug discovery in women's health, anti-infectives, metabolic diseases, neurological diseases, oncology and hematopoietic disorders. I have 23 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry applying ligand, and structure based drug design techniques to a wide range of problems. I am also an expert in the statistical analysis and graphical display of biological data. I have also set up and maintained chemical information management systems at three companies. Specialties:Structure Based Drug Design, Ligand Based Drug Design, Statistical Analysis, Chemoinformatics, Unix System Management, Contract Research Management, women's health, anti-infectives, metabolic diseases, neurological diseases, oncology and hematopoetic disorders.
