Research focus areas in biotech

Postby JJSS » Sun Mar 29, 2015 1:48 pm

Hi everyone,

Long time lurker, first time poster here. I am a PhD student working in infectious diseases. I plan to work as a scientist in biotech/pharma industry but I am still unsure if I should go for a academic or industry postdoc (this would be a topic for another post). I am looking for an inside view on the outlook of infectious disease research at Genentech in particular and at the Bay area as a whole. At Genentech, they list oncology, immunology, neuroscience, metabolism and infectious disease as their focus areas but I have only seen a few positions in infectious diseases. Is this an area that Genentech is still pursuing?

Sounds like a great question to answer through networking/LinkedIn.
