Biology Job USA | Research Associate Position @ Neurona Theraputics

Biology Job USA | Research Associate Position @ Neurona Theraputics: Neurona Therapeutics is an early stage biotechnology company based in South San Francisco created to develop stem cell-based therapies for neurological disease. We are focused on the discovery and development of cell-based therapies to treat intractable neurological disease. Our initial aim is to generate therapeutic compositions of a specific type of nerve cell (or neuron) for targeted delivery into the injured nervous system. Based on nearly two decades of research, we believe that particular subpopulations of neurons have the unique ability to integrate and repair dysregulated neural circuits. Our talented team of scientists, scientific advisors, and board directors is working to accelerate breakthrough treatments for patients with significant unmet medical needs. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a small team, work on transformative science, and take part in building an exciting, science-driven company.
