Initially trained in genetic engineering, she started her career in research as an independent scientist sequencing the Human Genome Project at Washington University. After 3 years, she was recruited to open the DNA Sequencing Shared Resource at the University of California, San Diego. The next 20 years were spent in management roles at UCSD, UCSF, and UCLA.
