Dr. Cleves has extensive experience in molecular and cellular biology (PhD, Univ. of Illinois). Her work spans both academic and commercial settings. She was a Helen Hay Whitney postdoctoral Fellow in the lab of Reg Kelly at UCSF prior to leaving UCSF for a biotech start-up.

The biotech experience evolved into an interest in the relationship between molecular structure and pharmacology and to applied research in computational chemistry and biology.
