Single Cell Analysis Scientist (Code: RB008)
Our client RemedyBio, is at a very exciting stage of growth, and have a number of new opportunities that we now wish to help them fill.
RemedyBio’s business is centred on commercially deploying our discovery capability, which forms the foundation of the current frontier of biological insight- understanding the myriad intricate interactions between the huge numbers of different cells involved in normal and disease states. These insights will yield a new paradigm for developing a whole range of entirely novel diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities.
Pandemic Response Platform, focusing on Covid-19
The RapCo-19 platform is designed to quickly prepare and process patient samples, identify the rarest B cells that produce highly potent antibodies against the SARS-CoV2 virus that causes Covid-19 illness, and then translate that discovery into a scalable, quickly deployable therapy. Once established to combat Covid-19, the platform can be quickly adapted to quickly rapidly counteract other infectious diseases.
