Jonathan’s previous industry experience includes being one the first employees hired at Cygnal Therapeutics, where he oversaw the platform build and all of the company’s early research. Over a period of four years, he built a team that broke new ground at the intersection of neurobiology and cancer biology, and advanced two novel programs through preclinical development. He was also instrumental in helping the company achieve two series of funding. Prior to Cygnal, Jonathan was also an early employee of Agios Pharmaceuticals, where he spent more than seven years with the company. He held multiple roles in target ID and validation, drug discovery and translational biology, with a therapeutic focus on cancer metabolism.
