At Gandeeva, we aim to revolutionize the drug discovery paradigm by employing ground-breaking advances in machine learning and cryo-EM imaging to develop precision medicines for our most challenging diseases with unmet needs.
We are an interdisciplinary team with a shared ambition: to use our diverse expertise and combined experience to create precise, effective therapeutics that improve the lives of patients and their caregivers.
We offer a stimulating, diverse, vibrant, and fun company culture that provides meaningful personal and professional growth experiences for all employees. We value your passion, perspective, experience, and ideas.
Dr. Bronwyn Lyons is a structural biologist who performs experiments using cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM); to collect data to inform our drug development process, she optimizes samples for cryo-EM, then takes millions of snapshots of each sample in order to develop a 3D model that will help Gandeeva’s protein team to narrow their search for key compounds to test further. As a Master’s student at the University of Guelph, she studied x-ray crystallography, and later attended The University of British Columbia to complete her PhD and hone her expertise in crystallography and cryo-EM.
For Bronwyn, working at Gandeeva offers the opportunity to leverage her skills to do meaningful work.
Katherine Rhodes is the Senior Operations Manager at Gandeeva Therapeutics. Her day-to-day work ranges from managing significant infrastructure projects, including the renovation of Gandeeva’s 22,000 square-foot head offices and research facilities, to developing processes and systems to support our scientific teams in their work. Katherine’s no-nonsense approach to procurement and facilities management ensures that everyone in the building has what they need to succeed, and that business operations run smoothly.
Katherine joined Gandeeva in 2021 to lead a massive renovation project that included retrofitting the space to accommodate highly technical – and sizeable – research equipment, as well as wet labs, computational space, and room for our administration and operations teams to expand.
