Wonder what it’s like to work in biotech portfolio management, and how to get there?

Come meet Sibu Kuruvilla, BioSci Connect mentor, who will tell you about his academic and training path, from his PhD in biomedical engineering/materials science and postdoc in oncology at Stanford to his current role as a Senior Manager, Portfolio Strategy and Planning. On this team, Sibu takes a portfolio-wide view of the R&D at Genentech and influences decision-making based on data and portfolio analytics to help bring innovative medicines to patients. He also champions diversity and inclusion initiatives, including co-leading a rotation program for diverse, early-in-career talent as well as creating a certificate program for undergraduates from underrepresented backgrounds. In this casual coffee chat, you’ll also have plenty of opportunities to ask Sibu questions about his academic and career experiences and path.
