  • Full-time
Company Description
From the very beginning, we have been focusing on the science. We came together as a team of experts, committed to quality, driven by excellence, and dedicated to experimentation. Though we faced many challenges, we remained fearless in our research and rigorous in our thinking, pushing ourselves to work harder. However, what affected us the most was the enormous burden patient's bear and the difficulties they face, which drove us to think about what's next.

We believe it is time to accelerate and expand that transformation. At Legend Biotech, we are excited to bring clinical trials to patients in our pursuit of a cure. While we are focusing on CAR-T in multiple myeloma, we firmly believe the prospects of cellular therapy stretch beyond just one disease or indication. The spark of hope is lit. At Legend Biotech, we are using that hope to ignite the future of CAR-T cell therapy.
