Dear Hiring Manager

I am an oncology research professional with 25+ years experience in oncology R&D working in academia and in Biotech industries. I served as a group leader at CuraGen Corporation, a genomics based company, director of product development at PGxHealth, a pharmacogenomics company, a senior scientist at Amgen, Inc. and a research scientist at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. I have expertise working in vitro (high throughput screening, mechanism of action, etc.) and in vivo assays (xenograft models, drug formulation, PK/PD, drug dosing & scheduling, etc.) for validation of novel oncology drugs (small molecule and mAb drugs).
I worked within the framework of a cross-functional team planning and implementing project goals and strategy, set up and monitor timeline and progress, create and manage budgets, assure contents of project documents (IB, IND, manuscripts, patent applications), conduct scientific presentations and assist in writing clinical protocols (Phase I). I was also actively collaborating with CROs, clinical trial sites and academic institutes. I do exhibit a strong work ethic and the ability to function effectively in a matrix environment.
I have a Ph.D. in Physics from Columbia University. I have published over 73 scientific articles in peer reviewed journals, 4 book chapters and made many scientific presentations at domestic and international meetings.
