Descripción del trabajo

As an Associate Principal Scientist, candidate will be responsible for developing bioanalytical immunoassay or cell-based assays supporting PK/PD concentration and immunogenicity assessment. By applying expertise in ligand binding assays such as ELISA and ECLA, bioassay and immunological techniques to quantitate biotherapeutics and biomarkers and to characterize immune responses to biologics, candidate will turn hope into help by accelerating our partners’ drug development programs. Contributions to this platform of testing will support multiple modalities across the spectrum of drug development in a custom-built state-of-the-art laboratory that includes bioanalytical, vaccines, genomics, anatomical pathology, and flow cytometry laboratories.
