Professional Bio: 

I am currently working in Boston, MA working as an investigative toxicologist in the Drug Safety Evaluation group of at Millennium: The Takeda Oncology Company. As an investigative toxicologist, I am responsible for identifying the molecular mechanisms by which Millennium oncology drugs cause systemic or organ specific toxicity. By identifying the mechanism by which a specific compound causes toxicity, the Drug Safety Evaluation group can determine whether this is a complication that can be ameliorated by changes in the compound structure, dosing regiment, drug formulation, route of administration or possibly co administration of another medication. If in fact a drug’s toxicity is dose limiting and can not be avoided by one of the methods mentioned above, our studies provide data that will be used in the ultimate decision of whether to continue its development through the Millennium drug pipeline.
