This is Sheldon

My background is in genetics and bioinformatics. I have a solid grounding in both molecular and computational biology. I work as a lead scientific data analyst at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. My role is to develop and implement data management practices for the Tier 1 pre-therapeutic target discovery group, identifying potential targets for future biological drug therapies. This is the earliest phase of preclinical research and is science and discovery focused.
