Faces of Fulcrum
We are innovators and collaborators. We are courageous and we are passionate. But above all else, we are advocates for the patients we serve. Learn what drives us.
Senior Scientist, Enzymology
My focus is to use enzymology/molecular pharmacology tools to enable the discovery of novel and transformative therapies to treat rare diseases. I find it exciting to be part of such a talented multi-disciplinary team whose singular mission is to bring transformative medicines via gene regulation to patients afflicted with rare disease. I’m here because this role clearly aligns with my interests.
Outside of work, I love to travel and spend quality time with family.
I work in the computational biology team at Fulcrum. My focus is in developing computational and genomic approaches that leverage large public and internal datasets to prioritize therapeutic strategies for various programs at Fulcrum. I joined Fulcrum because of the unique opportunity to impact the lives of patients with rare diseases working alongside an incredibly talented team.
Outside of work, I have a keen interest in Carnatic music. I also like to camp and hike with friends and family.
Senior Scientist, Translational Medicine
I am part of a team advancing therapies for muscular and neuromuscular diseases. My current focus is creating biomarkers capable of determining the effect of an FSHD therapeutic in clinical trials. I am passionate about helping patients with no current therapeutic options. We work hard at Fulcrum to create a culture that can tackle difficult diseases and create novel therapeutics. I am proud to work alongside very talented scientists and look forward to seeing what we create.
I love outdoor activities including skiing, hiking, kayaking and of course relaxing on the beach with an enjoyable book.
Senior Scientist, Developmental Biology
I joined Fulcrum in 2016 as a developmental biologist. My focus is to develop patient-derived, disease-relevant cellular and animal models to support identification of druggable targets and in vivo pharmacology for rare genetic disorders. I am proud to be part of the Fulcrum team, which has the right combination of know-how, creativity and motivation, as well as the scientific excellence and collaboration to fuel our therapeutic programs for the many patients with unmet needs to live normal lives.
As part of my curiosity to explore the unknown, I love wild animal adventures. On the weekends, you will find me with my family at the New England Aquarium or at the zoo.
Senior Associate, Human Resources
I joined Fulcrum as the second G&A hire in 2016 because I saw a great opportunity to work for a mission-driven organization that prioritized the patients and families it intends to help. I began as a member of the administrative team and recently moved into the Human Resources/Operations group. In my role, I interact with every member of the team and I love working with such motivated and fun people who never lose sight of why they are here.
As a classically trained opera singer, you may catch me singing tunes around the office or talking about the plant-based meals I enjoy crafting daily.
Principal Scientist, Target Validation
I am on the Biology team at Fulcrum with a focus on target validation, genomics and gene regulation. Prior to Fulcrum, I had never worked in neuromuscular or erythroid-related diseases and I enjoy the challenge of learning these new areas of biology and pushing ourselves to have a big impact in these fields. I decided to join Fulcrum because I think that modulating gene regulation in these diseases could produce long lasting and effective therapies for these patients that do not have many other options.
I enjoy running, coaching youth sports and high-altitude weather ballooning. You can see a video of my most recent launch here.
