  • Hands on expertise with in vitro based assays to quantify pro-inflammatory mediators in animals (ELISA, Luminex and MSD platforms, cell-based assays)

Desirable Skills/Experience:

  • Broad experience in animal procedures (intraperitoneal, intranasal, intramuscular injections)

  • Experience in mouse in vivo imaging is a plus.

When we put unexpected teams in the same room, we unleash bold thinking with the power to inspire life-changing medicines.
