"Stevan Djakovic"

Stevan Djakovic works as a clinical scientist supporting the development of venetoclax for treatment of CLL, at Roche/Genentech.
Previously he was at Cleave Biosciences where he started working in 2012 as an Associate Scientist responsible for the identification and characterization of novel small molecule inhibitors of protein homeostasis for solid tumor and hematological cancers. Following identification of the lead Candidate inhibitor to p97 he transitioned into a new role in the clinical department where he was the lead clinical scientist on three phase 1/2 clinical trials. Additionally he was responsible for developing the clinical pharmacodynamic and patient enrichment biomarker assays. Prior to joining Cleave he was a contract Senior Research Associate at Genentech with Avi Ashkenazi where he was involved in discovery and characterization of novel dual specificity FGFR antibody therapeutics. Stevan received his BS and PhD in Biology from UCSD and also received postdoctoral training at the UCSD School of Medicine. In his free time he can be found backpacking, running or cycling with his wife.
