In this role, he leads efforts in delivering and chemically optimizing oligonucleotide therapeutics. Prior to this, Robert served as the Head of Chemistry at Aro Biotherapeutics for three years. There, his teams research was pivotal during their $88 million Series A financing round. His team also played a significant role in advancing their key transferrin targeting Centyrin-GYS1 siRNA conjugate, ABX1001, to Phase 1 clinical trials. From 2010 to 2018, Robert spent eight years at Seattle Genetics, focusing on the development of ADC payloads and delivery technologies. His notable research includes work on the PDB payloads used in Vadastuximab talirine, a CD33 targeting ADC for acute myeloid leukemia, AML, that progressed to Phase III trials.
