Genentech speaker Rami Hannoush

Dr. Rami Hannoush from Genentech will give a research seminar in the department of Molecular Medicine on May 11 at 4pm in LHIII in the VMC. In addition, he will meet with graduate students and postdocs while he is here to talk about his experience in the biotech industry. Registration for the lunchtime discussion has now been closed.

Rami is currently Senior Scientist and Group Leader in Early Discovery Biochemistry at Genentech. His broad experience encompasses drug discovery projects with a focus in Oncology, Neurobiology and Ophthalmology, target discovery and validation, cellular signaling mechanisms, pharmacology, assay development and strategies for disrupting protein function. He also has expertise in peptides, small molecules and nucleic acids. 

Rami earned his PhD from McGill University in Chemistry/Biochemistry and was a postdoctoral fellow in Chemical Biology and Cell Biology at Harvard School of Medicine. While at Harvard he also obtained a graduate certificate in Strategic Management. For the past 8 years at Genentech, he has worked in Probes and Peptide Drugs, Cancer Signaling Pathways, Target Discovery & Validation, Molecular Evolution, Cellular Pharmacology, Fluorescence Microscopy, and Protein Engineering & Biochemistry.

With a prolific publication record from both the academic and industrial side (yes, you can publish when working in industry) Rami brings his experience to the lunch table for an engaging discussion on everything from his own career path to advice to PhDs wishing to go into an industry job.

Please note that the luncheon was limited to 25 due to space restrictions in the room, and it is now full. You are welcome to attend the 4pm public seminar in LHIII. To get there: enter the Veterinary Research Tower at the end of Tower Road - the room is toward the left across the hall from the revolving doors.
