A skilled chemical engineer with nearly 15 years of experience in his field, Craig William Taylor serves as Senior Data Systems Engineer at Genentech, Inc., a biotechnology firm based in Vacaville, California. Prior to stepping into his current role at the company, Craig William Taylor functioned in the capacity of Database Specialist and Engineer at Genentech, a position he maintained from September 1998 to September 2001. In addition to his work at Genentech, Craig William Taylor acted as Plant Information Administrator for California ISO, a nonprofit benefit corporation located in Folsom, California, and as a Systems Application Engineer at Roberts Technical Services in Pleasant Hill, California. As an integral part of Genentech’s team, Craig William Taylor facilitates the company’s goal of utilizing human genetic information to develop, manufacture, and distribute lifesaving medications for a wide range of serious or previously incurable illnesses. Founded in 1976 by renowned biochemist Dr. Herbert W. Boyer and venture capitalist Robert A. Swanson, Genentech was one of the first biotechnology firms to utilize new discoveries in recombinant DNA technology, an area of scientific study still in its infancy in the 1970s. In collaboration with geneticist Stanley Cohen, Dr. Herbert W. Boyer undertook the pioneering research that resulted in the discovery of recombinant DNA, giving Genentech a notable advantage over other burgeoning biotech organizations. Following Genentech’s establishment, scientists at the company discovered a method for splicing genes to create genetically engineered copies of naturally occurring molecules in the human body. By combining the spliced DNA components with rapidly replicating bacteria, Genentech scientists produced therapeutic proteins that could be formulated into effective pharmaceuticals. Over the years, Genentech vastly expanded upon Dr. Boyer’s work, saving the lives of millions of patients across the globe.
