Vice President, Discovery and Applied Genomics
Loxo Oncology at Lilly conducts discovery research, clinical development and regulatory affairs for oncology, with the goal of creating a pipeline of therapies that have the potential to make a meaningful difference for patients. Loxo Oncology at Lilly was created in December 2019, combining the Lilly Research Laboratories oncology organization and Loxo Oncology, which was acquired by Lilly in early 2019. The unit has team members in Boulder, CO, Indianapolis, IN, New York City, South San Francisco, Stamford, CT, and Madrid, Spain.
The Translational Biology Group Leader will be responsible for leading a research team focused on in-depth studies to provide clinically-focused research to guide discovery projects, biomarker strategies, and early clinical development. The translational biology team will work on multiple drug discovery projects and early clinical programs across solid tumors and hematological malignancies providing mechanism-based studies to characterize prototype, literature, and clinical compounds in clinically relevant in vitro and in vivo assays. In addition, the translational biology team will develop and characterize drug resistance mechanisms in in vitro and in vivo models, identify and test drug combinations based on molecular mechanism, and analyze clinical trial patient molecular characterization results to inform discovery, clinical, and diagnostic programs. The translational biology team will work closely with other project team members across disciplines including cell biology, in vivo pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, bioinformatics, and clinical leads.
