Bold ideas. Reliable data. World-Class Science.

Designing therapies to cure our most important health challenges requires the audacity to advance a bold idea and explore new biologies with world-class science.

By pushing at the frontiers of science, challenging what we think we know, and holding ourselves to the highest standards of irrefutable proof, we are reshaping the future of curative cellular therapies.

Director - In Vivo Translational Immunology

ArsenalBio’s mission is to develop efficacious and safe cellular therapies for patients with chronic diseases, initially cancer.  Our products are being designed to herald the transition of adoptive cell therapy from a hospital based treatment to outpatient therapy, like most other cancer treatments.  Our people are our greatest asset, they bring scientific talents in molecular biology, immunology, pharmacology, protein chemistry, computational biology, automation, genome engineering, software and other fields to make the future happen now.

Position Summary
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to lead our translational science and in vivo pharmacology at ArsenalBio. Substantial expertise in tumor xenograft and syngeneic mouse models, oncology, immunology and biomarker discovery, as well as translational research and regulatory filings, is highly desirable. The successful individual will oversee and lead the in vivo modeling group and work with discovery researchers to enable target discovery and next generation adoptive cell therapies. In addition, the successful candidate will support in vivo assays necessary to support product development and regulatory filings for pivotal clinical studies. This role requires an individual with outstanding communication and leadership skills.

What You Will Do:

  • Lead the pre-clinical in vivo pharmacology group effort that utilizes syngeneic, transgenic and other in vivo tumor models to support discovery science as well as pharmacology efforts to advance projects as required
  • Responsible for collection, analysis and interpretation of experimental data
  •  Oversee all training and supervision of dosing studies, blood and tissue sampling, and surgeries as required
  • Develop novel pre-clinical efficacy studies to discovery biology
  • Support product development and regulatory filings for pivotal clinical studies
  • Manage internal resource allocation and external collaborations
  • Responsible for working with team members to draft protocols and then ensure proper authorization and compliance
  • Participate and present data during internal research meetings and interface with cross-functional groups
  • Participate in the training of in vivo pharmacology personnel as needed for proficiency in all aspects of tumor model studies
  • Follow laboratory safety guidelines and practices
  • What You WIll Bring:

  • PhD in cancer biology or related field with 10+ years of relevant industry experience
  • Strong background in tumor biology, immunology and tumor models including syngeneic and human cell line derived models
  • Extensive hands-on experience with all aspects of running tumor models
  • Experience with various tumor models to demonstrate mechanisms of action
  • Experience working with antibody therapeutics is highly desired
  • Experience managing a team of scientists and research associates in a biopharmaceutical setting
  • Demonstrated ability to work in collaboratively in a cross functional environment
  • Experience in vivarium operations, resource management, and budget planning is required
  • Must have excellent troubleshooting, organization, and planning skills, and the ability to work under timeline in a fast-paced environment

    “Curing patients is our goal. Success necessitates innovation and an open mind to explore the etiology of human disease and challenge and extend current paradigms of treatment. Diseases such as cancer can develop when immune surveillance breaks down. Current treatments typically address only one cause of this breakdown. At ArsenalBio we implement cutting edge technologies to deeply understand the biology of human disease and to develop therapies that deliver multiple therapeutic modalities in a single cell.”
