statistical experience and use as a launch pad into the
executive level, then considering joining us as an Associate
Director of Oncological Biostatistics.We target nephrology,
cancer, inflammatory disorders, and metabolic and

alliances with Hoffmann-La Roche, Japanese brewer and
drugmaker Kirin, and other pharmas.
