Filza graduated from Nanyang Technological University in 2009 with a first class BSc honours degree in Chemistry and Biological Chemistry. After graduation, Filza worked for two years as a scientific associate at Forma Therapeutics where she worked on the synthesis of screening library molecules using a combinatorial chemistry approach called diversity-oriented synthesis (DOS). Thereafter, she continued to widen her scientific expertise at the Novartis Institute for Tropical Diseases (NITD) and was involved in early-stage drug discovery work as a medicinal chemist. In 2012, while still at NITD, she embarked on an industrial PhD funded by Singapore’s Economic Development Board. Her research focused on the synthesis of natural products for the development of new treatments for malaria.
Fuelled by a passion for healthcare and a strong desire to learn more about the later stages of the drug development pipeline, Filza joined Costello Medical in January 2018 as an Analyst in the Singapore office. She is excited to be part of a highly energetic team and looks forward to applying her knowledge and experience to a wide range of projects.
