Sygnature Discovery welcomes Dr Scott Pollack as Associate Director of Bioscience
Scott has extensive experience applying biophysics and enzymology to a broad range of drug discovery targets, covering areas ranging from target validation and assay development through to hit identification, characterisation and mechanistic analysis. This experience was gained both from BioFocus (Charles River), where Scott worked for eight years prior to joining Sygnature and the Merck Sharp and Dohme Neuroscience Research Centre, where Scott developed a strong pharmaceutical perspective in these areas, particularly applied to neurodegeneration targets. Scott has a BA in chemistry from Harvard and a PhD in chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley, with research based on catalytic antibodies. He also carried out post-doctoral research on enzymology targets at Harvard.
