  • Experience planning, managing or conducting in vivo mouse syngeneic tumor studies (efficacy, pharmacodynamic, pharmacokinetic)
  • Expertise in myeloid biology as evidenced by authorship on high impact publications and patents
  • Experience with outsourcing and tech transfer of assays to third parties and CROs
  • Experience working in a fast-paced, cross-functional organization where collaboration is highly valued
