Known for its scientific and operational excellence, Regeneron is a leading science-based biopharmaceutical company that discovers, invents, develops, manufactures, and commercializes medicines for the treatment of serious medical conditions. Regeneron commercializes medicines for eye diseases, high LDL-cholesterol, atopic dermatitis and a rare inflammatory condition and has product candidates in development in other areas of high unmet medical need, including rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, pain, cancer and infectious diseases.

Project Description: The candidate will be challenged with developing fully automated analytical methods for binding assays using the ELLA platform instrument from Protein Simple. Binding assays are used for determining relative potency of clinical candidates in Analytical Sciences Analytical labs. Traditional approaches to binding assay methods require much hands-on time, and can be susceptible to variability due to differences in analyst techniques. The simple-plex assay platform from ELLA offers reduced hands-on time, and potentially decreased variability due to the fully automated technology integrated into the platform. This intern project will include evaluation of off-the-shelf, as well as custom-coated ELLA cartridges for developing binding assay methods, and comparison of the ELLA technology with traditional manual methods. Evaluation of the ELLA platform for incorporation as a binding assay platform option will help achieve the goal of lab automation, while increasing efficiency, reducing hand-on time, and decreasing variability.
Desired Majors and/or Skills:
