1 School oƒapplied Life Sciences 1997 School oƒ Pharmacy 2013 Minerva Schools at KGI 2013 DISCOVERY SUMMER KGI is dedicated to education and research aimed at translating into practice, for the benefit of society, the power and potential of the life sciences x Left to right: Graduates Ashi Jain, Joanna Naymark, Timothy Han, Horrace Owino and Jason Ross High temperatures and a missing speaker didn t dampen spirits at KGI s 13th Commencement on May 17. In fact, President Sheldon Schuster joked that of the many valuable qualities that KGI graduates possessed, adaptability and flexibility were near the top of the list. Due to an illness, commencement speaker Senator Bob Kerrey delivered his speech remotely from his home in New York City. In his address, Senator Kerrey lauded the graduates for choosing to pursue a career in the life sciences, a field that had the potential to improve people s lives and benefit the wider society. Most of you have chosen a life where your actions will be responsible for improving the health and prolonging the lives of other human beings, he said. Some have chosen to go to work every day knowing that perfection is not possible and that some of your efforts will be in vain. It is perhaps the noblest and most challenging of all human actions. I thank you for it, I applaud you for it, and I respect you for it. However, the senator cautioned the graduates that they should not be afraid to be selfish when it came to taking care of their own health and needs. Because you have made this choice someone needs to remind you to find a way to also be selfish without being a jerk, he said. I mean that you need to take care of yourself in order to take care of others. You need to acquire the habits that will keep you as healthy as your genes and external accidents will allow.

2 COMMENCEMENT BOARD of TRUSTEES To my friends in the MBS program, do invite me over when you throw parties on Mars, Europe or any space colony you own in the future. Your training and discipline will be an asset to any company, in any role or situation. - Naren Vinayak, President of the Class of 2014 Student speaker Ronita Mukherjee He also advised the Class of 2014 not to be afraid of failure but to welcome it: But, when you fail, which you will, my fondest hope is that you will find the way to move on perhaps to another failure with undiminished enthusiasm. Ronita Mukherjee, a student in the PPC program, was selected to be this year s student speaker and chose to speak about growth and perspective. After taking classes here and experiencing life from multiple vantage points, I think I can safely say the most important learning I did here at KGI was about perspective, she said. From learning about the gaps in global health care with Dr. (Steve) Casper, to learning about how to create a device to address that need in Dr. (Angelika) Niemz s class, I learned how to think not only like an executive, but more importantly as a member of the global community. As the fifth alumni commencement speaker, Louis Shamel, MBS 09, welcomed the Class of 2014 into the KGI alumni family. Shamel, who for the past four years has been part of the mergers and acquisitions team at Thermofisher Scientific, told the graduates that whether you find yourself more often in a conference room or a lab, you have the tools to plan, collaborate, execute and grow regardless of what a rapidly changing industry like ours could throw at you. President of the Class of 2014 Naren Vinayak called his fellow classmates superstars and said he was confident of their future success: I can see the PPC students waiting to enter and revolutionize the medical field; the PPM students being future executives in the life science industry, contributing with in-depth scientific knowledge and recently acquired management skills. To my friends in the MBS program, do invite me over when you throw parties on Mars, Europe or any space colony you own in the future. Your training and discipline will be an asset to any company, in any role or situation. Vinayak also thanked his fellow classmates for generously donating their pocket money to the Class Gift Fund, a portion of which initiated the Class Gift Endowed Fellowship for the betterment of KGI and the success of its future students. 2 / KGI - Summer Newsletter 2014

3 COMMENCEMENT BY DEGREE KGI awarded 106 degrees to 105 graduates at Commencement Christine Chen received both an Master of Bioscience (MBS) degree and a Bioscience Industry Law and Practice Certificate. MBS (48) PPC (27) PPM (18) MS (5) Joint PhD (1) Bioscience Management Certificate (6) Bioscience Industry Law and Practice Certificate (1) President Schuster and Naren Vinayak, president of the Class of 2014 Finally, President Schuster sent the Class of 2014 off with two final requests. He asked the graduates to always have passion for what they were doing, to do the right thing and the best thing all the time. He also asked that they be open to experimentation and keep themselves challenged by doing new things all the time. Dr. Luann Bangsund Receives Henry E. Riggs Excellence in Teaching Award Known for creative teaching methods that help students understand why so many life science companies falter, Dr. Luann Bangsund received this year s Henry E. Riggs Excellence in Teaching Award. Dr. Bangsund was an early adapter to the flipping-the-classroom teaching which moves introductory lecture material into short YouTube-like concept videos that students use to prepare before class, allowing actual classroom time to be spent on more advanced discussion, said Dr. Steve Casper, interim dean of the School of Applied Life Sciences (SALS). This is the second year in a row that the award has been presented to a member of KGI s faculty thanks to a generous gift from KGI President Emeritus Henry Hank Riggs. The $5,000 unrestricted award is funded for a period of five years. Last year s winner was Dr. Angelika Niemz. This award is focused on active learning and active teaching, which is an important component of our current strategic plan. It is decided by a faculty committee that relies heavily on a student poll. This year the consensus was overwhelming that Dr. Bangsund deserved the award, Casper said. Before joining KGI, Dr. Bangsund had a 20-year career in banking. She worked at Wells Fargo, Citibank and Kleinwort Benson, Ltd. (now part of Dresdner Bank). She was also an assistant professor of finance at the Eberhardt School of Business at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA. In addition to teaching core courses in accounting and corporate finance, she teaches an advanced elective course on valuation in the life sciences.

4 A Mem DONOR PROFILE The old adage love what you do really resonates in the Fuladi household. My wife and I are both very happy and proud in our careers [as pharmacists]. We love the range and flexibility of practice the field allows, Fuladi says. There aren t many areas of practice, even in health care, that allow you to have such a comfortable life with such a high level of job satisfaction. As vice president of operations at Coastal Pharmaceutical Services in Oxnard, California, Dr. Bob Fuladi says he gets to do a bit of everything on pretty much a daily basis. It s very rewarding because it combines a business model with a strong clinical model. We do sterile and non-sterile compounding. We work with sub-acute patients who need IV infusions. We have vaccination programs and work in conjunction with various clinics, such as TB and HIV clinics. We specialize in medications not easily found in A Pharmacist s Pharmacist KGI SoP Advisory Board member Dr. Bob Fuladi on why he loves his job and why he s proud to provide Fellowship support for SoP students a traditional retail pharmacy, he explains. It s a model even the big retail chains are starting to embrace, especially as the role pharmacists play in preventing unnecessary hospitalizations becomes more widely acknowledged. Fuladi may have no doubts about his chosen profession now, but his original plan was to become an MD. I had an uncle who was a pharmacist and I lived with him for a while. It gave me the opportunity to see what he did and to ask questions. It really gave me a feeling for the field, Fuladi says, adding that it wasn t until after he had finished his first-year pharmacy program at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences that he knew he made the right choice. After finishing his undergraduate work at MCPHS, Dr. Fuladi went on to complete the PharmD Program at University of Kansas Because the profession has been so good Today, first-rate programs like the KGI SoP are highly advanced clinical programs. The coursework is extremely challenging and a student has to be very focused to succeed. to him, Fuladi says he feels an obligation to support the next generation of PharmDs and to do everything he can to keep the practice of pharmacy moving forward. Fortunately for KGI, one of the ways Dr. Fuladi has chosen to fulfill this obligation is by providing Fellowship support for KGI School of Pharmacy (SoP) students. His generous donation will allow high-achieving students who might not otherwise be able to afford it the opportunity to be part of the inaugural class and pursue a career in pharmacy. KGI is creating a fantastic PharmD program one that will really give students exactly what they need going forward, he says. Beginning in the 90s even, the field became much more clinical. Today, firstrate programs like the KGI SoP are highly advanced clinical programs. The coursework is extremely challenging and a student has to be very focused to succeed. For the PharmD student who keeps that focus, Fuladi sees almost unlimited possibility. Today, with our knowledge base continually expanding and as we re increasingly recognized as frontline healthcare providers, the options are almost limitless, he says. Graduates from the KGI SoP will have a very wide range of jobs open to them. They can go into research and development, regulatory, direct patient care, project management, you name it.

5 STUDENT PROFILE Meet the Founding Class of the KGI School of Pharmacy: Juan Antonio Silva 18 This former Marine and father of three proves it s never too late to do what you love On August 23, KGI will welcome the inaugural class of the School of Pharmacy at a traditional White Coat Ceremony marking the student s transition in to a professional program. The founding class includes individuals from dramatically different backgrounds but all are united in their passion for their chosen profession and excited to be part of KGI s innovative new PharmD program. Pharmacy is not Juan Silva s first career, but he is certain it will be his last. In the past, the 34-year-old Texas native has served in the U.S. Marine Corps and owned and operated his own small business. However, he never forgot about his passion for science, medicine, and most importantly, helping sick people feel better. My uncle is diabetic, explains Silva, who describes himself as a proud Mexican American. When I was younger, I would translate for him, explain what the doctors and nurses were saying, and help him get the tools and resources that he needed to manage his diabetes. Although Silva says the experience of watching his uncle struggle with diabetes left him with an intense interest in health care, he didn t immediately pursue it as a career path. Instead, he enlisted in the Marines upon graduating from high school and was sent to Camp Pendleton in San Diego. Being a Marine, Silva says, quite simply changed his life. I wouldn t trade my experience in the military for anything, he explains. The discipline it teaches you that alone is invaluable. Then there s the professionalism and the leadership skills. The skills I developed in the Marines are skills you can take with you everywhere. I relied on them when starting my business and I plan to bring them with me to the practice of pharmacy. When Silva s enlistment was up, he and his wife, Carmen, whom he d met in San Diego, decided a life in the military was not for them. So they returned to Silva s home in Brownsville, Texas, where Silva quickly followed in his father s footsteps as a business owner in the transportation industry. My dad really pushed the business end, Silva says. We clashed a lot when I was younger because he had a set plan for me. The business and home, everything was very close together, and he couldn t understand why I was interested in something different. It was Silva s mother, Norma Alvarez, who eventually convinced him that it was time to make a change and do what he really wanted with his life. She had recently been diagnosed as pre-diabetic and got a lot of valuable information about how to manage the condition from her local pharmacist. She knew that s what I wanted to do, and she told me the time to do it was now. I couldn t just hope to please my dad, Silva My father is a proud Mexican who never went to the doctor in his life, but now he has more of an appreciation for what medicine can do. says, adding that, as the father of three young children, the decision to commit to a four-year intensive program was still a tough one. I want my kids to know that education is very important and that you have to work hard to reach your goals. Even though it will be difficult over the next four years, in the end it s worth it. One thing that was not difficult for Silva, however, was his decision to enroll in KGI s new School of Pharmacy (SoP). When I visited campus, I could tell the faculty and staff were people who were interested in our success, he says. I felt like this was a place where I d get a lot of one-on-one attention and not be treated like a number or blend into the background. That s very important to me. A sense of camaraderie with his fellow students is one of the things Silva says he is most looking forward to when he takes his place in the SoP s founding class this fall. It kind of reminds me of the military, he says. You have the opportunity, in a different setting, to be part of a team. The more you work together, the more you ll learn, and the better your chances of success. And, among those rooting for Silva s future success as a pharmacist will be his father, Antonio, who is recovering from a recent heart attack. My father, is a proud Mexican who never went to the doctor in his life, but now he has more of an appreciation for what medicine can do, says Silva, who has been helping to make sure his father gets the right medication and sticks to a healthy regimen. There s a huge gap in health literacy and healthcare outcomes in the Hispanic community, he adds. I m hoping I can contribute and help make it small. KGI - Summer Newsletter 2014 / 5

8 ALUMNI PROFILE A Man of Action: Jeff Liepman, MBS 07 While members of the Class of 2014 are just beginning their careers in the life sciences, some of their fellow alumni are already in industry leadership positions. That s impressive on its face, but particularly so when you consider, that since KGI graduated its first class in 2002, its 'oldest' alumni are in their 40s. This profile of Jeff Liepman, MBS 07, is the first in a series taking a look at some KGIers who are already stepping to the forefront as people to watch in life science industry management. To say Jeff Liepman, MBS 07, doesn t suffer from 9 to 5 boredom would be an understatement. As a senior vice president at Promidian Consulting, a management consulting firm focused on the life sciences industries, the Washington native is responsible for the company s West Coast operations. Our firm is on the leading edge of commercial strategy at many of the largest and most successful biopharma companies out there, which equates to a fast-paced, high stakes yet tremendously exciting environment to work in, Liepman says, adding that among the things he likes most about his job is the ability to interact with so many different types of people in the field and the necessity of covering so much ground in a relatively short amount of time. Our team recently designed the commercial model for a large biotechnology company launching a new product into a therapy area they were not familiar with, he says. We collected information from payers, physicians, pharmacists and nurses to help us understand the market landscape. These primary insights, along with additional bench research, supported us in developing the vision, strategy and operating framework for this new commercial division. The impact these kinds of projects have is substantial, driving everything from hiring decisions to how their field teams position and speak to the new product with their customers. Liepman came to Promidian from biotech consulting giant Campbell Alliance, where he led a team of more than 20 consultants as regional general manager for the southwestern United States. There, he racked up several awards and distinctions, including top performing consultant and manager across the entire firm. Part of Liepman s success comes from knowing his strengths, including an ability to work in the sweet spot where science and business intersect. In fact, those That s why KGI made complete sense for me two more years of applied studies and the opportunity to focus on business in the life sciences. characteristics are what led him to KGI in the first place. I had always wanted to pursue a graduate-level degree in the life sciences but wasn t comfortable committing to 5 or more years for an MD or PhD program. Plus, I felt a strong desire to contribute more on the business-end, working with and managing people, as opposed to just focusing on the science, says Liepman, who majored in biochemistry at Willamette University. That s why KGI made complete sense for me two more years of applied studies and the opportunity to focus on business in the life sciences. Although Liepman says he got a lot out of his coursework, what he values most about his graduate education at KGI are the intangible aspects that he says helped to position him for success. What I mean by intangibles is all of the hyper-realistic, competitive and applied situations KGI puts their students through, he explains. In order to be successful at KGI and ultimately with your career it s imperative that you manage your time carefully, learn how to work well with others and follow through with your commitments. These intangibles are quite unique and in my eyes something you can t find elsewhere. Although most of Liepman s time is occupied building and leading a best-in-class consulting team from Promidian s West Coast headquarters in South San Francisco, as well as hiring staff for a new L.A. office, when he has a free moment he enjoys competing as a CrossFit athlete and spending time with his wife and two young children. Although he s very satisfied with life at present, Liepman says he s looking forward to whatever possibilities may come his way in the future. For the time being, I m quite content at Promidian playing a key role in building and leading a very exciting organization, he adds. I ve always held myself accountable to being with a company that challenges me intellectually, surrounds me with great people and rewards those who excel. So beyond those few constraints, I wouldn t close the door to anything. 8 / KGI - Summer Newsletter 2014

9 TRUSTEE BOARD PROFILE of TRUSTEES This SoCal Venture Capitalist Likes to Swim with the Sharks Literally Growing up, KGI Trustee Alex Suh wanted to become a marine biologist. He was fascinated by fish, loved the ocean and had a particular knack for cultivating saltwater aquariums. (Originally, he had asked his mother for a snake but that was out of the question.) But, then, a conversation with a neighbor changed his mind and quite possibly the course of his life. He was a PhD and a professor and I really respected him, Suh says. He told me that many of the PhDs he knew were driving trucks. While many 11-year-olds wouldn t have listened to such adult advice, Suh was no ordinary 11-year-old. He was an entrepreneur in the making. I started with a little gardening business, just going around the neighborhood with a map and a push mower. But soon I had cash in my pocket. I gave a lot of it to my mother but I kept some. It was cool. It gave me a taste for the entrepreneurial, says Suh, who became a member of KGI s Board of Trustees in February after serving on the advisory council for the past five years. Next, Suh started a business doing the thing he loved servicing aquariums although at first he didn t see it as a business. I just did it because I loved it; I didn t take cash or gifts, just told people to buy me an aquarium or something if they were happy. Despite Suh s early reluctance to accept payment, he soon had a successful business on his hands, one that he sold at the ripe old age of 17. Several more small business ventures came and went as Suh worked his way through college, earning a BS/BA from the University of Denver. But, despite these early successes, the job that taught him the most valuable skills was yet to come, and it was across the country at a Virginia coal mine. After earning his degree in Denver, Suh found himself looking for a new challenge, so he accepted a job as a consultant working with the United Mine Workers of America, the coal miner s union. His job was to work with management to improve productivity and cut costs. I was the only Asian coal miner, Suh jokes. Seriously, though, I knew nothing about coal mining and it was an enormous challenge to gain the miners trust and to convince them I was honestly trying to save money and ultimately jobs. There were several turning points on the road to gaining that trust, including one movie-like incident in which Suh was lowered 3,000 feet into the mine shaft in a cage attached to a single steel cable off the back of a pickup truck. Instead of descending at a steady rate the entire way down, the miners would throw the switch on the newbies and let them experience a rapid drop for a few seconds. When I came up, I said let s do that again. They just laughed and were shocked because others freaked out in the past, but after that they listened to me a lot more and paid more attention in training, Suh says, adding that the experience really taught him how to communicate in a way that was blunt but respectful. That same candor has helped him to succeed as a venture capitalist. Suh s firm, California Technology Ventures, focuses its investments in the life science and information technology sectors. We re not experts in IT or life sciences, and we know it. But we are experts in entrepreneurship and in taking companies from beginning to exit, he says. Companies don t fail because of technology; they fail because management doesn t execute well. Although Suh enjoys every aspect of what he does, investing in the life sciences has a particular meaning for him. SEE SUH ON PAGE 11 The first time I dove, I looked down and saw like 20 of them swimming around. I wasn t sure if I could really do it. But, after a few seconds, it was the most peaceful and serene feeling I ve experienced. They re completely tranquil and you re tranquil when you re with them. KGI - Summer Newsletter 2014 / 9

10 TMP WRAP UP A Lot of Hard Work, But So Worth It Twenty-three Team Master s Project teams made presentations this year, covering everything from HIV stem cell therapies to the clinical landscape of Huntington s disease Lilly, Pfizer, Amgen, Gilead and Boehringer Ingelheim were part of an impressive list of life science companies sponsoring a KGI Team Master s Project (TMP) this year with several companies sponsoring more than one. TMPs are capstone projects in which teams of three to six students work with a life science company to solve realworld problems. The annual TMP Presentation Day, which gives the teams a chance to show off all of their hard work, is a highlight of KGI s academic year. Every year, the quality of these projects is so high it s hard to believe that it can be consistently maintained year after year, KGI President Sheldon Schuster said, but each year it is, and each year the scope and range of the problems addressed expand. Varant Shirvanian, MBS 14, and a member of the City of Hope HIV Therapies team, said he felt particularly privileged to be developing a business plan for a therapy that has the potential to revolutionize the way HIV is treated and have real impact on patient s lives. Developed by Dr. Dave DiGiusto at COH s Beckman Research Institute, the therapy involves modifying a patient s own stem cells to be resistant to the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that causes the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). In order to get a handle on the unique challenges of commercializing a gene therapy product, Shirvanian and team members KGI students Varant Shirvanian and Melissa Campos present their business plan for City of Hope s HIV stem cell therapies. Melissa Campos and Brigette Duran talked to experts in venture capital, regenerative medicine, regulatory approval, technology transfer, and biotech operations. The team also conducted a competitive analysis of current HIV therapies. The final plan included detailed financial projections and identified a series of funding milestones for equity investors to fund its operations. I think my team was successful because we didn t spend a lot of time worrying about our titles or individual roles; we just collectively focused on each task, deliverable and what we needed to accomplish, said Shirvanian, who added that the team also got a great deal of support from Dr. DiGiusto. We had weekly conversations with Dr. DiGiusto. He updated us regularly and really got us a lot of the information that we used in the business plan, added Shirvanian, who said one of the issues the team considered was how to develop a pricing structure for a therapy that had the potential to permanently remove a patient from the HIV population. One option is to develop a long-term payment plan that is based on how long a patient is not taking anti-retroviral therapies, which cost an average of about $400,000 during a patient s lifetime, Shirvanian said. We definitely believed it will be important to create a paradigm that will be approved by the healthcare community as a whole. Pricing and marketing a novel stem cell therapy like this one are topics Shirvanian is sure to give more thought to in the immediate future as he s landed an investor relations position at Sangamo Biosciences. The Richmond, California-based company is developing a similar stem cell therapy that could very well be a competitor of the one created at COH. Working on a business plan for the past year in the gene therapy field has not only given me experience doing financial modeling, it also has allowed me to get a handle on a lot of the science behind the therapies, Shirvanian said. So I think I ll really be able to hit the ground running at Sangamo. 10 / KGI - Summer Newsletter 2014

11 NEWSBOARD of TRUSTEES Fit to Print KGI student club acquires its first 3D printer thanks to the generosity of a local woman KGI students Paul Schuber, Kevin Kim, Andrew Barajas, Keshav Sharma and Leeor Zibermintz are all members of the 3D printing club. The term life sciences covers a lot of ground, and KGI students have very diverse interests within the sector regulatory, medical devices, marketing. The list goes on. But one thing most seem to agree on is that 3D printing is on the brink of revolutionizing the biotech industry (and many others, in fact). Organovo (a San Diego startup) has already built models of human kidneys and lung tissue using 3D printing, says Thomas Luu, MBS 14. The ability to make anything you want, from iphone cases to car parts to medical devices, makes this the consumer commodity of the future. So focused is their interest that several months ago KGI students formed a 3D printing club with the immediate goal of raising money to purchase a 3D printer accessible to the entire student body. Ultimately the club s goal is to establish a thriving 3D printing lab and open community for 3D printing here on campus. The club has about a dozen members, with KGI faculty members Joel West and Anna Hickerson acting as advisors. Dr. West is researching consumer adoption of 3D printing, while Dr. Hickerson teaches a section on SolidWorks a 3D mechanical design program as part of a medical diagnostics course that all first-year Master of Bioscience (MBS) and Postbaccalaureate Premedical Certificate (PPC) students take. The newly formed club s mission to acquire KGI s first 3D printer got an enormous and completely unexpected boost thanks to the generosity of a La Habra Heights woman named Wilma Kellough, and a timely story in City of Industry News, the monthly newsletter of the Industry Manufacturers Council and the City of Industry. A family friend shared the IMC article with Kellough, who at the time had a 3D printer sitting unused in her garage. The printer belonged to Kellough s son, Jeff, who died last December at age 47. Kellough says her son, an aerospace engineer who was always a bit ahead of his time, had purchased the early model 3D printer in 2000 to start his own business. He used it to make specially designed shipping containers for sculptures and other works of art, Kellough said. He also did some things for a doctor that had to do with neurosurgery. But I remember at the time he had a hard time explaining the concept of 3D printing to people. They just couldn t envision what it could do. When Kellough read of KGI students excitement about the potential of 3D printing, she says she knew that donating the printer would be a wonderful opportunity to honor her son s memory. Jeff was always very interested in education and in teaching people new things, Kellough says. Donating the printer to a school so young people can develop their skills and use their imaginations really represents everything he stood for. Plans are already underway to put Kellough s donation to great use, says 3D printing club organizer Andrew Barajas. Mrs. Kellough s donation will allow students to do research into tissue printing similar to what many of the top research centers are capable of doing, Barajas says. We also hope the printer will be used to help students become more interactive in the medical device and diagnostics major here at KGI, as they will be able to print designs that they came up with and see their visions of new medical device technology come to life. We re very grateful to Mrs. Kellough for helping to make this possible in a much shorter time span than we had anticipated. SUH FROM PG 9 When you deal with the life sciences, you re often dealing with something that has the potential to be life changing for millions of people. That s very rewarding, he says. It s why I chose to be involved with KGI. The students all have great potential to affect the future of the life science industry. When it comes to his own future, Suh hopes to be able to devote more time to his lifelong passion for underwater photography. A highly experienced scuba diver, Suh started a website to share pictures from his many dives. My friends would ask to see the pictures and I got tired of Drop Boxing everything so I created the website. In the future, I hope to use it more to promote conservation efforts. Among his favorite images are those taken during cage-free shark dives. Suh loves diving and swimming with sharks literally. The first time I dove, I looked down and saw like 20 of them swimming around. I wasn t sure if I could really do it. But, after a few seconds, it was the most peaceful and serene feeling I ve experienced. They re completely tranquil and you re tranquil when you re with them. KGI - Summer Newsletter 2014 / 11
