With a particular affinity for setting up new labs from scratch at start-up companies, Sadaf has enjoyed 20 years of experience in the life science industry. She began her career as a bench scientist, identifying causative mutations for specific inborn metabolic disorders at Mass General Hospital, followed by sample-prep product development at US Genomics, and then early-stage drug discovery studies at Ribonovix.
Sadaf was the fourth employee to join Sage Science and was integral to the development of the Pippin alpha and beta prototypes. As Sage grew, she built and led the applications support team, managed several product launches, and continued to contribute to the research and development of each product that Sage has released. Sadaf now leads corporate operations where she excels at team management, as well as the design and control of production and commercialization processes.
