Jenny’s Flare characteristics: Moving programs forward with data-driven decisions and having fun doing it!

Jenny has experience ranging from early target discovery, to supporting phase 3 clinical development in small molecule oncology therapeutics, while working in discovery biology and leading translational biology over the past 12+ years.

Over this time, Jenny has moved various projects forward with rigor and objectiveness, working on cross-functional teams to build strong data packages to give the best chance for success, from early target discovery to translationally focused efforts.

She enjoys hiking, biking, cooking and watching movies with her husband and twin sons. Often the free time is taken up with sports activities for the boys, though!

WHAT MAKES YOU EXCITED TO ‘BRING IT’ EVERY DAY AT WORK?

I'm excited to work with a fun, caring and cohesive team that is driven to achieve a common goal to make transformative medicines to improve patients' lives!

WHAT SPARKED YOU TO JOIN FLARE?

The opportunity help build a company and to tackle the challenge of drugging transcription factors with an amazing team.
