Before joining AstraZeneca, he was part of Cambridge Antibody Technology (CAT), which later became MedImmune.
In addition to antibody discovery, Ralph is known for pioneering new technology platforms within the biologics field, including phenotypic, or target-agnostic, antibody screening which has yielded many novel therapeutic targets, some of which are now being tested in clinical trials.
