Genentech As of August 2013, Genentech employed more than 12,300 people.[6] The Swiss global health-care company F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG now completely owns Genentech after completing its purchase on March 26, 2009 for approximately $46.8 billion.[7][8] Research[edit] Genentech markets itself as a research-driven corporation that follows the science to make innovations. They employ more than 1,100 researchers, scientists and postdocs and cover a wide range of scientific activity — from molecular biology to protein chemistry to bioinformatics and physiology. Genentech scientists in these various areas of expertise currently focus their efforts on five disease categories: Oncology, Immunology, Tissue Growth and Repair, Neuroscience and Infectious Disease. Facilities[edit] Building 32, one of the Genentech headquarters' newer buildings Controversy[edit] Disputes[edit] In 1999, Genentech agreed to pay the University of California, San Francisco $200 million to settle a nine-year-old patent dispute.

Business Intelligence Solutions: Make Smarter Business Decisions | Kogent Corporation "Race" in College Admission FAQ & Discussion 9 [Moderator's note: This thread has been superseded by a newer FAQ and discussion thread, in which you are all invited to participate. Ethnic Self-Identification Is Optional for College Admission Students are often puzzled about how to respond to questions on college applications about race or ethnicity. U.S. makes clear that self-identifying ethnicity is OPTIONAL for students in higher education. That self-identifying by ethnicity is optional has long been clear on the Common Application, which more than 450 colleges (for example Harvard, Carleton, the University of Michigan, the University of North Carolina, and the University of Virginia) use as their main or sole application form. The Common Application optional section includes the federally specified questions about ethnicity: 1.

Arthur D. Levinson Education[edit] He received his bachelor's degree from the University of Washington in Seattle in 1972 and his PhD in biochemistry from Princeton University in 1977. He subsequently moved to a postdoctoral position with Michael Bishop and Harold Varmus in the Department of Microbiology at the University of California, San Francisco, where he was spotted by Herb Boyer, who hired him to work at Genentech.[4] Career[edit] Levinson joined Genentech in 1980 as a research scientist and became Vice President of Research Technology in 1989; Vice President of Research in 1990; Senior Vice President of Research in 1992; and Senior Vice President of Research and Development in 1993. In 1995, Levinson became Genentech’s chief executive officer, and in 1999, he was named chairman.[5] In the same year, Levinson received the Irvington Institute's Corporate Leadership Award in Science[6] and was honored with the Corporate Leadership Award from the National Breast Cancer Coalition.[7] Personal life[edit]

Featured Article Krešimir Josić works in several areas of mathematical biology and applied dynamics. His main interest is theoretical neuroscience. In particular, he is interested in how coherent behavior in neuronal networks is used to encode information. Over the last few years he has supervised the research of several undergraduate students, and is always on the lookout for talented and motivated students to join his research group. Visit the homepage of Dr. Mark Zuckerberg, Sergey Brin, Yuri Milner Create $33 Million Breakthrough Prize For Medical Research Three of Silicon Valley's most high-profile entrepreneurs are launching a new Foundation with designs on the Nobel Prizes. The Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences Foundation is to reward life-saving research with 11 annual awards, each with an individual reward of $3 million. Google's Sergey Brin and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg have teamed up with technology investor Yuri Milner, whose eponymous awards were set up last year to award breakthroughs in fundamental physics, to reward medical breakthroughs. "Young people will hopefully get the message that not only the careers in sports or entertainment can get a public recognition," Milner said. [Read more about the Most Innovative Companies in health care.] All three tycoons (tech-coons?) The winners of the $33 million, from the U.S., Japan, Italy, and the Netherlands, were officially announced today. Here's the full list, from Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences: Cornelia I. Lewis C.

Home : The Gulf Coast Consortia How Russian Tycoon Yuri Milner Bought His Way Into Silicon Valley | Wired Magazine In less than two years, Yuri Milner's fund has gone from zero equity to more than $12 billion in assets.Photo: Greg Girard This is my first trip to Moscow, and Yuri Milner, the world’s most successful investor in social media, is taking me to his parents’ apartment, which he bills as a typical middle-class Moscow dwelling. It’s drab Soviet brick outside. The none-too-reliable-looking elevator is encircled by a crumbling staircase. But inside, the apartment is genteel and highly recognizable to me. It’s like many you would find on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, a cramped and comfortable set of rooms without a recent paint job, filled with too many tchotchkes and way too many books. The message seems clear: Milner may have invested in virtually every social media powerhouse, from Facebook to Twitter to Spotify. To many, Milner’s success is not just too much, too fast, but also somehow unfair. It certainly hasn’t played that way in the tight-knit club of Valley venture capitalists.

National University • Master of Science Computer Science Lead Faculty: Dr. Pradip Peter Dey The Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) program at National University provides students with a solid foundation, in the fundamental knowledge and skills of software engineering, database theory and design and cloud computing, exposing them to best practice methodologies using a variety of tools and techniques required for solving real world problems and to be of immediate benefit to the computing industry. National University s MSCS program not only prepares students in the theoretical and practical aspects of solving complex computing problems but also it develops other essential communication skills. MSCS graduates are able to clearly discuss issues, trends, and solutions with both technical and non-technical audiences. In addition, every part of the curriculum is devoted towards developing people skills, ethics, and standards of professionalism.
