Senior Director, Chemistry

Sean established and leads Nura Bio’s chemistry capabilities. Prior to Nura Bio, he had over 15 years of industry experience at Chiron and most recently Amgen, where he was a Principal Scientist and Project Team Leader focusing his research toward innovative approaches for previously thought to be “undruggable” target classes. He led efforts that resulted in the identification of two clinical candidates targeting protein-protein interactions. Sean completed his graduate work in organic chemistry with Professor David MacMillan at Caltech designing enantioselective organocatalytic transformations, after receiving his Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of California, Davis.
