Tina Etcheverry, PhDAdjunct Professor, Faculty Advisor, Team Masters Project
Product Development in Biotechnology, Technology Transfer, Cell Culture Process Design, Molecular Biology and Biochemistry
Dr. Etcheverry, originally from Seattle, Washington, received her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from UC Berkeley in 1975 and her PhD degree in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics from Cornell University in 1980. In 2007, she retired from Genentech after 25 years of leading process development groups in cell culture and providing tech transfer expertise to international partners. She is recognized for her leadership role as Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC) team leader for three products. These teams were instrumental in bringing TNKase, Xolair and Lucentis from concept to market. She currently works as a consultant with multiple biotech companies, providing consulting services on product development strategies and resolving process issues.She also serves on the Board of Directors for Biotech Partners, a non-profit organization that offers a specialized science and technology curriculum for under-represented youth in the biotechnology field. Since September 2011, Dr. Etcheverry has served as an Adjunct Faculty member at KGI for the Team Master Projects.
The Team Masters Project (TMP) is the capstone activity for second-year Master of Bioscience (MBS) students and for Postdoctoral Professional Masters (PPM) students. It is assigned 2-course credits each semester for a total of 4 course credits and a passing grade in both semesters is required for graduation with an MBS or PPM degree.
