Drug Discovery Biologist
********** is seeking pre-clinical translational scientists with experience in drug discovery to join our New York-based team. This is a high-visibility, high-impact role that affords the opportunity to help shape our drug discovery programs. Responsibilities include working collaboratively with our team of computational scientists and consultants on target evaluation, selection, and translational strategy; overseeing experimental work at our CRO partners from the design and implementation of functional cell assays to in vivo testing ; and providing strategic advice regarding new drug discovery opportunities across therapeutic areas.
Relevant areas of experience include leadership of pre-clinical drug discovery programs, design of in vitro assays as well as in vivo disease models, and formulation of translational plans.
