WHAT MOTIVATES YOU?

People are what drive me, working with brilliant people coupled with world class breakthrough technologies and innovation. I firmly believe that making an impact starts within–how we do things, how we work with integrity, and how we empower and inspire each other to bring our best selves to achieve the best results.

WHAT’S BEEN THE STEEPEST LEARNING CURVE OF YOUR CAREER SO FAR?

My first few months at Roche Headquarters in Switzerland transformed me from looking at drug discovery and development from outside to a more inward-looking, thorough and humble manner.

WHAT CURRENT TECHNOLOGY TREND DO YOU GET MOST EXCITED ABOUT?

I think the 21st century is going to be the era of cell and gene therapy which will be the third wave of revolution in healthcare. It changes the way we treat diseases that were previously incurable.

IF YOU COULD GIVE A PIECE OF ADVICE TO YOUR 20 YEAR OLD SELF, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
