Meet our passionate team

I love working at Alector because of the passion of the scientific team, [and] the challenge to find a treatment for AD, FTD, etc feels as hard and as important as the challenge of landing on the moon. ... it's exciting.

Alusha Mamchak, Senior Research Project Manager

The two things that stood out to me the very first day I started at Alector were how hard everyone in the organization worked and the collaborative spirit everyone possessed. This environment makes coming to work very easy and inspires me to do everything I can to help move projects forward.

Will Estacio, Senior Associate Scientist

Alector's people are chasing the science with an entrepreneurial spirit to create value through novel approaches to treatment for unmet medical needs, and I wake up every day with a bounce in my step knowing that I am part of the Alector culture and its mission to empower the immune system to cure neurodegeneration.

Kevin McCauley, Senior Director, Technical Operations

I love working at Alector because we have a great culture that encourages and enables collaboration and innovation with teams of excellent scientists to make an impact on a disease area that needs new approaches. We have a chance to really make a difference in peoples' lives
