Why did you decide to join Lycia?
My background and interests aligned closely with Lycia’s research; my academic studies focused on understanding how protein degradation controls cellular processes. I was excited to learn about LYTACs that degrade cell-surface and extracellular proteins, which are largely inaccessible to current degradative technologies. Joining Lycia, and having the opportunity to develop therapeutic LYTACs, was an easy decision.
What makes Lycia a great place to work?
At Lycia, we are venturing into unexplored areas in our field; it is exciting to harness this knowledge to ultimately treat disease. The culture at Lycia embodies continuous learning; we are unafraid to make mistakes as long as we learn in the process. There is a strong sense of support and comradery fostered by our talented team of scientists which makes working at Lycia a rewarding experience.
