Senior Research Associate, Antibody/Adc Analysis & Purification
Catalent Biologics-West (formerly Redwood Bioscience) has developed a protein-chemical engineering technology to produce the next-generation of antibody- drug conjugates ("ADCs") and other semi-synthetic biotherapeutics. The Company's proprietary SMARTagTM site-specific protein modification technology, novel conjugation chemistry and proprietary cytotoxin-linkers enable the generation of homogenous bioconjugates engineered to enhance potency, safety and stability. The technology employs natural post-translational modifications found in human cells to site-specifically create one or more aldehyde tags on protein molecules. These chemical handles are then stably conjugated to cytotoxic payloads to prevent their systemic release. The SMARTagTM platform provides precise payload positioning and defined stoichiometry of payload-protein ratios. The control afforded by the technology also enables identification of superior drugs from libraries of differentially designed conjugates. Our Emeryville, CA site is hiring for multiple positions, visit us online and apply today!Catalent is seeking a SENIOR RESEARCH ASSOCIATE who will be responsible for the development and execution of cell and antibody based assays.
