We are seeking a motivated Scientist to contribute to the engineering and optimization of novel tools for gene writing to generate more efficient and safer gene therapeutic solutions.
The candidate will participate in a highly translational project with Interactions with academic institutions, industry and clinicians.
Expected starting date: Summer 2022.
Integra Therapeutics is a biotechnology company that is creating next-generation gene writing tools to make advanced therapies safer and more effective. The technology is based on the CRISPR system, which has been merged with transposase and integrase proteins that have a great capacity for gene transfer. Thus, the system does not depend on viral vectors for transporting the gene-editing components into the cell both ex vivo and in-vivo.
The company was founded in 2020 as a spin-off of Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) by Dr Marc Güell and Dr Avencia Sánchez-Mejías and is based at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB). It is supported by international investors (AdBio Partners, Columbus Venture Partners, Invivo Capital and Takeda Ventures) and organizations in the healthcare and biomedicine sector.
