The Enzyme Replacement Therapy group, part of Regeneron Genetic Medicines, is seeking a Senior Scientist to develop novel therapeutics to improve the safety and efficacy of viral and nonviral genetics medicines. This work would involve developing in vitro and in vivo models to elucidate immune signaling pathways involved in gene therapies and evaluating therapeutic candidates in these models. A strong emphasis on creativity and ingenuity to challenge existing dogmas and investigate unsolved problems in genetics medicines will be required. Your immunology expertise combined with Regeneron’s technology platforms, including viral and non-viral gene therapy, CRISPR-mediated gene editing, VelociGene transgenic mouse models, and the extensive catalog of fully human therapeutic antibodies, will be used to make immediate contributions to the field of immunology of genetics medicines.
As a Sr. Scientist, a typical day may include the following:
Design, perform, analyze, and troubleshoot in vitro and in vivo mouse experiments to investigate and validate therapeutic targets
Design, coordinate, analyze large animal model immunology-focused experiments with external vendors to inform clinical program development
Design and run animal/human ELISpots, immunophenotyping, and other relevant T cell assays
Collaborate with team members and provide immunological wisdom
Provide occasional experimental support for existing late-stage preclinical assets in the pipeline
Participate and present in departmental meetings and external conferences
This role may be for you if:
You enjoy working in an innovative and cross-functional team.
You have a passion for championing new immunomodulatory therapeutics.
You have strong organizational, time-management, and communication skills.
You can effectively and rationally balance and prioritize multiple projects.
This role requires a Ph.D. in immunology or a related field or a B.S./M.S. with 10 years in an immunology-focused role. A strong background in in vivo T cell biology with experience in both humans and mouse models. Experience in developing and running immune functional assays of primary human blood/tissue products is highly desired. Familiarity with the unique challenges of immune responses in gene therapies and gene editing are a plus.
