Dominic W. Lai

Senior Medical Director at Seagen

Key strengths: Dominic approaches his work with clarity in thought, orthogonal thinking, and strategic planning. He has a bias towards action and enjoys supporting colleagues to improve their own performance. Professional biography: In the pharmaceutical industry, Dominic's initial focus was on early phase clinical development of oncology assets. He shepherded the clinical preparation for six IND submissions (ABBV-428, ABBV-927, ABBV-151, domvanalimab, AB680, and SGN-CD30C) and defined the expansion dose for 3 molecules (ABBV-085, ABBV-927, and domvanalimab). His work at MedImmune (2013-2015) included combination trials evaluating checkpoint inhibitors (durvalumab and tremelimumab) and angiogenic inhibitors in various solid tumors. At AbbVie (2015-2018) and at Arcus (2018-2019), he continued this focus and shepherded trials evaluating novel combinations of immunotherapies in solid tumors. Of note, these trials included intratumoral administration and trial designs informed by genomics. Now at Seagen (formerly known as Seattle Genetics), Dominic works in the late phase development group, working on projects evaluating brentuximab vedotin and enfortumab vedotin. One of the joys of working within industry for Dominic is working with colleagues of diverse backgrounds towards novel solutions. Personal Biography: Born in Hong Kong, Dominic immigrated to the US with his family at the tender age of seven. He moved many times during his childhood but his family ultimately settled in Los Angeles (which included a stint in East Los Angeles). Nurtured towards academic excellence by his parents, he studied molecular biology and creative writing at UC Berkeley, medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and medical oncology at NYU Langone Medical Center. He is board certified in internal medicine and medical oncology. While Dominic worked in private practice, his desire for macroscopic impact led him to join the pharmaceutical industry in 2013.
