How did you get involved in biotech?

My interest in biotech stems partly from my work in developing a small molecule-based therapy for cancers caused by the Epstein-Barr Virus. My project focuses on the basic science aspect of testing the efficacy of the small molecule in an in-vitro setting and determining it's mode of action. This work led to my interest in how drugs are taken from the laboratory into the clinic. I participated in the Wisconsin Entrepreneurial Bootcamp in 2013, which further piqued and cemented my interest in the biotech industry, especially smaller start-up companies. I am impressed with and attracted to the multi-tasking needed to successfully launch and maintain such a company.

What is your connection to Wisconsin?

I have lived in Madison for more than 5 years now. My wife is from Kenosha, and my in-laws now live near the city of Burlington, WI. This state has been my home now for almost a fifth of my life, and through my wife is truly a second home.


I am currently a graduate student in the Cell & Molecular Biology program at the UW. I currently work in tumor virology and cancer therapeutics development.
