Top Genen­tech re­searcher steps away and Roche turns to the Broad for a star re­place­ment play­er

Michael Var­ney is step­ping away from his top post in Genen­tech R&D, and the sto­ried biotech is pluck­ing a star cell ex­pert from the Broad as his re­place­ment.

Aviv Regev will now be tak­ing a lead­ing role in a $10 bil­lion re­search or­ga­ni­za­tion as head of Genen­tech Re­search and Ear­ly De­vel­op­ment, bet­ter known as gRED to Basel-based pRED, and join­ing the ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee at Roche. Af­ter pick­ing up her PhD at Tel Aviv Uni­ver­si­ty in com­pu­ta­tion­al bi­ol­o­gy, Regev went on to be­come a top in­ves­ti­ga­tor in bi­o­log­i­cal net­works, gene reg­u­la­tion and evo­lu­tion.
