After my postdoctoral fellowship at the Whitehead Institute/MIT, I went to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory as a Senior Staff Investigate where we used yeast as a model organism to study novel mechanisms for regulation of cell cycle and cell growth. After 9 years, I moved to Wyeth Research in 1996 with a desire to translate science into treatment of human cancer. During this time, I led a group that developed Bosulif: an Abl/Src kinase inhibitor that is approved for relapsed and first line chronic myelogenous leukemia. Pfizer acquired Wyeth in 2009 and after serving as Vice President of Oncology Target Discovery within the Pfizer Oncology Research organization, I am currently Vice President of Oncology Scientific Strategy.
I manage coordination of Oncology Scientific Strategy and the project portfolio through collaboration with our three Chief Scientific Officers in the Oncology Research Division. We review external scientific innovation and business development partnering opportunities.

I joined Pfizer in 2017 and am a Senior Vice President in the Pfizer Early Oncology Research and Development Group. I focus on clinical development of early oncology assets. Prior to joining Pfizer, I was the Head of Early Development and Immunotherapy at Pharmacyclics (an Abbvie company). I was the clinical lead for the first Ibrutinib FDA approval in mantle cell lymphoma that was associated with a New England Journal of Medicine publication. I also led the Ibrutinib clinical team responsible for the first approved therapy in marginal zone lymphoma. As a faculty member of the Moffitt Cancer Center, I was the recipient of a Hollis Brownstein Research Grant and was recognized as a “Scientist to Watch” by the Leukemia Research Foundation. I also received multiple Clinical Scholars in Oncology Awards from the National Cancer Institute.
My group (Early Oncology Development and Clinical Research-EODCR) is responsible for the early clinical development portfolio here at Pfizer. It consists of leaders from clinical development, clinical pharmacology, translational oncology, and other supportive areas. Our responsibility is to work closely with our discovery research and late development colleagues to transition our molecules from discovery to pivotal trial testing. In early development our responsibilities include performing first in human clinical trials with the goal of determining the safety profile and early efficacy signals of our novel molecules. Along with this, understanding the appropriate dose and schedule, indications to pursue, and combination partners to test are key deliverables from our group. In addition, a large focus on translational medicine is pursued in EODCR. Understanding pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, resistance mechanisms, and subject selection strategies associated with our molecules is of paramount importance. The high functioning scientists and physicians as well as supporting staff that make up this group allow us to achieve these goals on a daily basis.

I joined the immuno-oncology efforts at Pfizer after 20 years in academia, initially as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Biological Science at the University of California, San Diego, and then at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP). At SBP, I was a Professor and Director of the Tumor Microenvironment and Cancer Immunology Program in the NCI-designated Cancer Center. Currently, I am the Chief Scientific Officer of the Cancer Immunology Discover (CID) Unit of Pfizer Oncology Research & Development, which is located in South San Francisco. Our driving interest is to understand how cells of the immune system are instructed or foiled in eradicating cancer cells within the tumor microenvironment. Understanding these cellular interactions at the molecular level holds the promise of developing novel immunotherapeutics that can confer durable anti-tumor responses.
The Cancer Immunology Discovery (CID) team in South San Francisco is focused on the generation of large molecule immunotherapeutics that promote anti-tumor activity or counter immunosuppression in the tumor microenvironment. To achieve this goal, protein engineers, immunologists and cancer biologists at CID combine talents to advance projects from concept to clinical compounds. Protein engineering efforts are supported by a world class antibody generation program, and a commitment to effective biotherapeutic design that stresses both ingenuity and simplicity. Our immunologists and cancer biologists take a holistic approach to understanding the interplay of tumor, stromal and immune cells in the tumor microenvironment, striving to define the axes of intercellular communication that could be leveraged to generate novel therapeutics.

“The field of cancer immunology is in its infancy and yet we have already witnessed highly durable responses in some patients responding to check point inhibitors. While these treatments demonstrate the promise of immunotherapy, challenges remain to develop novel approaches that deliver effective, safe and durable treatments across tumor types. That’s the challenge we embrace every day and drives our discovery research.”

In this role, I lead the research group responsible for preclinical development of tumor-targeted therapeutics including antibody drug conjugate (ADCs), nanomedicines and bispecific T cell redirecting molecules. I joined Pfizer in 2009 as Associate Director, Oncology research Unit. Since 2009, in Pfizer, along with my colleagues, I built industry leading platforms and pipeline in targeted oncology arena and brought in several new technologies.
Prior to joining Pfizer, I led Pharmacology groups at Enzon Pharmaceuticals, NJ and Immunomedics Inc., NJ and developed several oncology-based drugs that are undergoing clinical evaluation. I have broad expertise in tumor-targeting strategies and biotherapeutics including immunotherapeutics, liposomal drug delivery system, nanoparticles, antisense oligonucleotide delivery and pegylation technologies. I am a well-recognized expert in the targeted therapeutics field and have given numerous lectures at national and international meetings.
I received my Bachelor's degree from the premier medical college of India, All India Institute of Medical Sciences. I was one of the two Indians selected to be awarded the prestigious British Chevening scholarship to pursue MS in Pharmacology from UK. I received my PhD in Pharmacology from University of Alberta on an AHFMR scholarship, in the lab of Theresa M Allen who pioneered the concept of Stealth liposomal technology that ultimately resulted in the development of Doxil®. My doctorate work focused on development of novel antibody-targeted liposomal drugs. I am an author of >50 scientific publications, book chapters and inventor/ co-inventor on >25 patents and have been a recipient of NIH SBIR grant. In 2017, I was recognized as one of the Healthcare Business Women Association Rising Star for Pfizer.
I am the Chief Scientific Officer of the Targeted therapeutics Discovery group. The group is advancing the frontiers of cancer biology with a “toolbox” of differentiated technologies and targeted cancer therapies that selectively attack cancer cells while sparing normal healthy tissues. The group has deep expertise in the areas of various cancer-targeted modalities including nanomedicines, bioconjugates, antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) and redirected T-cell bispecifics. Importantly, the group has contributed to the development of approved ADCs such as Mylotarg and Besponsa and advanced several other ADCs and redirected T-cell bispecifics in to early and late stage clinical development. The group has a deep biology focus on understanding innate immune sensing pathways and is combining the fields of immune-oncology and nanomedicine to develop novel platforms for delivering cancer immunotherapies.

I joined Pfizer in 2016 as CSO for Tumor Cell Biology, in the Oncology Research and Development Group. We are focused on the discovery and development of lead-in-class small molecule cancer therapies. Prior to Pfizer, I was Professor of Cell Biology; Associate Director of Basic Science for the Harold Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center; and inaugural Director of the Cancer Intervention and Prevention Discovery program at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
The research in my academic group over the past 20 years has helped define the nature of oncogenic cell regulatory networks; decode the molecular architecture of mitogenic signaling pathways; enrich functional annotation of cancer genomes; and deliver genomics-guided cancer intervention target nominations. This work has been described in ~150 publications with over 12,000 citations and an H-index of 65. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)
At Pfizer, our group pursues chemically addressable targets that intercept oncogenic signaling networks; modulate tumor/host interactions; and promote productive anti-tumor immune responses. We partner with colleagues in Medicinal Sciences, Drug Safety R&D, and Clinical Development to help deliver first-in-class small molecule drugs that benefit patient populations with unmet need.
