Scientist, entrepreneur, author, venture investor. Co-founder of Excel Venture Management which invests in transformational life science companies. Former CEO of RxGen and CSO of US Genomics.

This career change was considered risky and was motivated in large part by frustration that many meaningful laboratory breakthroughs donot finding their way to the outside world.

Co-founded biotech companies, published >100 scientific research papers, and trained >100 talented young scientists who have gone on to successful careers in academia, industry, and government.
