Prior to starting at Regeneron in 2010, Benjamin Adams earned his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Penn State. During his time at Regeneron, Ben has worked in process development, focusing on downstream purification of various biologics, and as a staff engineer, currently oversees a group responsible for the purification process development of gene therapy programs.
Associate Director, Research Program Management
Brandy Bennett, Ph.D., joined Regeneron in 2012 and now serves as co-head of the Research Program Management team. The RPM team is responsible for managing cross-functional teams and activities to align and drive research from discovery to therapeutics, delivering multiple drug candidates for first-in-human trials per year. Along with research senior management, Dr. Bennett is responsible for guiding the Regeneron research portfolio, aligning execution of research priorities, and facilitating forward-looking strategic planning activities. Prior to her current responsibilities, Dr. Bennett held roles working across all therapeutic areas in both research and development functions, including scientific writing & regulatory liaisons, and strategic program direction. Dr. Bennett received her Ph.D. in Microbiology from NYU School of Medicine, where she studied the molecular biology and host-pathogen interactions of the malaria parasite.
Lead Science Educator, Post Doc Program
Jordan Leao started at Regeneron in 2010 after earning a Masters in Public Administration from NYU Wagner. Since then, she has served in a number of roles within R&D, where she has helped establish several programs to foster scientific exchange and community service. Jordan is currently serving as lead science education coordinator, responsible for oversight of science education programming and outreach, including the high school mentorship program and coordination of the postdoctoral program, the annual Regeneron Prize for Creative Innovation, and the “Regeneron Science to Medicine Forum,” the annual regional graduate student conference.
