Deborah Kallick

Deborah received her PhD in Chemistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago (specializing in Biophysical Chemistry, 1987), followed by a post doctoral research position at the University of California, Berkeley, with Professor David Wemmer. Deborah fell in love with California. However she then continued her academic career as an Assistant Professor of Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Minnesota, where she was granted indefinite tenure and promoted to Associate Professor. In 2000, Deborah shifted gears and worked on the Human Genome at Incyte Genomics as the G-protein Coupled Receptor Gene Specialist, followed by a short stint at the University of Texas, Medical Branch at Galveston, where she helped manage a large, interdisciplinary program in infectious disease (West Nile virus), contributing to several publications as well. Deborah went back to the SF Bay Area in 2005 to work at SRI International, where she worked with investigators at top area Universities, creating preclinical development plans for a wide spectrum of diseases and drug types. Deborah became an independent consultant in 2008 and has freelanced for the past couple years, creating web content and articles in a number of areas, including pharmacogenomics, drug side effects, chemotherapy, and other topics. Early in her consultant days she worked in competitive intelligence and attended several large scientific meetings and wrote reports for clients. At ASCO she reported on new NSCLC (non small cell lung cancer) therapies. At another meeting she reported on protein therapeutic issues for her client. For the last few years, Deborah has worked as a freelance consultant for a variety of clients in preclinical development in several different therapeutic areas. She is also interested in plant medicine and is working on a database in that area.
