Why I'm a JPAL

I am always passionate to engage with great minds to discuss science and emerging technologies. In return, I am pleased to share my experience in infectious diseases, immunology and vaccines.


I have extensive drug discovery experience in the pharmaceutical industry, with a focus in infectious diseases, vaccines and autoimmunity. Prior to Janssen, I was the Unit Head of Translational Medicine of Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics, Europe. Besides, I have worked in external innovation with Simcere Pharmaceuticals. Recently, I am a Visiting Professor Infectious Diseases and Immunology of University of Oxford, UK.


“I hope that some day the practice of producing cowpox in human beings will spread over the world - when that day comes, there will be no more smallpox.”

In medicine, never say never. Don't give up great ideas.
