1990 - 1994 DuPont Merck Pharmaceutical Co., Wilmington, DE

Director of Applied Biotechnology

Supervised two research groups that formed a 52-person organization:

  • Managed over 25 research projects in 5 therapeutic areas.
  • Created a sweeping new scientific program in integrin biology.
  • Produced many multi-gram quantities of purified proteins for screening and structural biology.
  • Guided post-doctoral scientist in the creation of oocyte and patch-clamp electrophysiological assays for rapid cloning of neural cGMP-coupled receptors and drug screening.
  • Invented a novel yeast-l-hybrid system that rapidly cloned genes corresponding to substrate-specific yet previously unknown proteases.
  • Demonstrated the validity and power of single-chain antibody systems for rapidly making discovery reagents.
  • Developed protein-family-specific SAGE systems that profiled gene expression complexity in human disease and the changes during drug treatment.
  • Created novel degenerate PCR systems used to clone gene families of drug targets; including suppression PCR normalization and targeted subtractions.
  • Invented a unique differential display system (DDGE) that identified gene family members whose expression changes during disease progression.
  • Created novel oligonucleotide-directed subtraction protocols (capture) for constructing gene-family-enriched libraries.
