She has interacted with global regulatory agencies including US-FDA, EU, Canada, and Australia and has participated in Advisory Committee meetings. She has represented nonclinical development on multi-functional teams, led a team of scientists and vivarium staff to support therapeutic programs across multiple locations, and audited/monitored GLP safety studies in house and at contract laboratories.
Dr. Greene has extensive experience with due diligence and BD licensing/partnership activities and was also a member of the metabolic disorders and cardiovascular licensing teams at Amgen. In addition, Dr. Greene has been very active in professional safety science groups and has presented at the Society of Toxicology Meetings since 2005. She has published multiple patents and scientific articles. Dr Greene guest lectures at USC, University of California Santa Barbara, School of Biotechnology & Engineering, California State University, Channel Islands and also, in Honors Bioscience programs at Foothill Technology High School. Dr. Greene received her PhD in 1995 from the University of California at Davis.
