I hold Bachelor of Science, DDS and Master of Science degrees from UNC. My research experience began with honors research in biochemistry, followed by NIH pharmacology research. Later, I was a Research Fellow at the National Institutes of Health in embryology. Over the last few years, my investments have been concentrated in biotech in order to capitalize on my background, achieving successes most notably in Vertex and Inhibitex. I have been a major shareholder of CytRx Corporation for the past two years.
