Chris’ Flare characteristics: Active and passionate team-oriented organizations. Scientific curiosity with patients at the forefront.

At Flare, Chris focuses on identifying and characterizing mechanisms of small molecule modulators of transcription factors, by using biochemistry and biophysical approaches.

In his decade plus in the industry, Chris has been a part of lead discovery programs, ranging from enzymes, protein-protein interactions, GTPases, and protein aggregation targets across Oncology, Epigenetics, Endocrinology, and Neurodegeneration. In that time he was able to be part of several teams that put molecules into the clinic, which for Chris, is what makes it all worthwhile—because it’s helping patients!

Chris enjoys spending time with his wife Angie and two boys, Jack and Luke, and their two dogs Captain and Chloe. In his downtime, nothing makes him happier than being on the water fishing or spending time outside by the fire pit under the night sky.

WHAT SPARKED YOU TO JOIN FLARE?

I wanted to be part of this dynamic and talented data driven team to join them in attacking challenging, highly validated targets to help patients.
