I joined NovalGen in September 2019 to lead the Discovery team. I wanted to work for a small start-up company early in its growth phase, and impressively NovalGen had put in place the capabilities to take a molecule from concept to clinic. This underpins why we have moved so rapidly to the clinic following the founding of the company. The culture of the company is very open and friendly, with a real sense of teamwork, which makes NovalGen a fun place to work, especially when meeting the challenges of progressing our pipeline to develop our next generation molecules!
