Speaker Profile

Ph.D., Exec. Director, Clinical Dx and Data Science, Translational Medicine, Genentech

Biography
Eric currently leads the Clinical Diagnostics and Data Science group within the Translational Medicine organization at Genentech. The focus of his team is to identify, develop and implement clinical biomarker assays, platforms and data analyses in order to advance drug development, diagnostic/drug co-approval and ultimately patient care. These efforts employ both traditional (e.g., IHC and PCR) and novel (e.g., NGS, liquid biopsy, digital pathology) modalities across the patient journey from diagnosis to early stage and advanced disease treatment. Prior to joining Genentech in 2012, Eric led a team at Illumina focused on diagnostic assay and platform development including a team that developed the first NGS-based FDA cleared platform (MiSeqDx). Eric received his PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmacogenomics from the University of California San Francisco.
