  • Developed and delivered training to organization of approximately 900 employees.
  • Improved training compliance rate by fifty percent over previous scattered systems.
  • Developed new computer-based system to enable better tracking of quality trends.
  • Managed improvement in participation in the site Behavior & Culture system.
  • Overall participation rate nearly doubled in four years.
04/2002 to 05/2006 Principal Researcher Exact Sciences | San Jose, CA,
  • Designed, synthesized, purified, and characterized arthritis and bone drug candidates using traditional medicinal chemistry and laboratory automation techniques.
  • Served as training and safe practices officer for divisional safety program and represented Discovery Division as safety contact for laboratory decommissioning process.
  • Synthesized nearly 200 analogs in various protease and kinase projects, including the first in vivo active proprietary compound in a kinase project targeting rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Applied synthetic methodology developed on one project to a key late-stage step on a new project, increasing the yield more than two-fold while greatly simplifying the purification, saving over 50% on the cost of starting materials for a large-scale synthesis.
  • Co-authored 7 peer-reviewed articles and 4 presentations at national meetings based on this work.
  • Represented Discovery Division as safety contact for laboratory decommissioning process.

  • Pharmaceutical Research Institute.
  • Designed, synthesized, purified, and characterized oncology drug candidates using traditional medicinal chemistry and laboratory automation techniques.
  • Rapidly prepared over 100 analogues of a major chemotype using directed-library techniques and laboratory automation, saving several months of laboratory time for the group compared to traditional methods.
  • Co-authored 2 peer-reviewed articles and 1 presentation at a regional meeting based on this work Synthesized fifteen compounds in large scale for in vivo testing in four different projects.
  • Saved approximately 10 to 20% on the cost of starting materials and reduced the time needed to prepare the compounds by 10% by improving the synthetic yield of several key steps of each route.
1995 to 2000 Staff Scientist, Chemical and Physical Sciences The DuPont Pharmaceuticals Company | City, STATE,

Designed, synthesized, purified, and characterized cardiovascular drug candidates, especially in the Serine Protease inhibitor programs.

•Synthesized over 50 analogues in the Factor Xa project, eventually leading to the discovery of a clinical drug candidate.

•Co-authored 9 peer-reviewed articles and 6 presentations at national meetings based on this work.

•Served as a resource for other researchers during company-wide transition from Macintosh to Personal Computer format, reducing downtime related to computer problems.

•Maintained common-area laboratory equipment for a group of thirty chemists. Reduced service calls for this equipment by 25% the first year by following proper routine maintenance procedures.

  • Redesigned the Research Data Services database to improve its utility to users.
  • Conducted ten user-group sessions to determine needs by group within the Medical Products Department and interpreted needs for the programmers.
  • System usage increased another 20% in the first six months after deployment.
  • Tested over 20 new applications that were developed in the group during an 18-month period.
  • All applications were successfully launched within project time frame and budget.
01/1987 to 11/1988 Laboratory Technician, Medical Products Department E. I. Du Pont De Nemours And Company | City, STATE,
  • Synthesized, purified, and characterized antifungal drug candidates.
  • Synthesized two drug development candidates for systemic antifungal applications.
  • One of these compounds was successfully out-licensed.
