What propels us forward ...

I am propelled to drug discovery by exceptional data-driven science . Outside the laboratory, I propel down mountains from Maine to Argentina by snowboard, and along fencing pistes in New England.

Director, Biochemistry and Biophysics
'But I say to you that when you work you fulfill a part of earth's furthest dream, assigned to you when that dream was born' is just one of my favorite quotes from Kahil Gibran's The Prophet. I've always loved science, and I feel especially privileged to work with these other amazing Civettizens as we navigate this novel class of proteins.

Director, Biology
Having family and friends who are fiercely fighting cancer, the hope that what we are doing at Civetta can touch patients and improve the quality of their lives propels me. The joy of learning something new every day keeps me moving forward. Outside work, travels, running, yoga, and family, especially hugs and kisses from my 1-year-old girl!
Carrie Bhang, Ph.D.
Associate Director, Biology
To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.
Tara Davis, Ph.D.
Senior Scientist, Protein Biochemistry &
Structural Biology
I am passionate about using the power of genomic medicine and computation to better understand critical human diseases and propel forward powerful new therapies.
David Orlando, Ph.D.

As one of the first employees, I have had a chance to make things happen. I can help drive science forward by creating a workspace that allows the team to focus on the real work. Collaboration, cooperation, synergy and a nurturing culture propels me.

Whether I’m tackling tough problems in lab or propelling through the air on aerial silks, I seek adventure.
