Scientist/Senior Scientist

Intabio is a venture-funded technology company committed to revolutionizing the way biopharmaceutical drugs are developed and produced. We have assembled a stellar team of innovators known for creating groundbreaking technologies for molecular characterization and drug discovery. Our first product, the Blaze™ system, provides a novel approach to high-throughput detection and identification of subtle protein modifications - modifications that can undermine the stability and efficacy of life-saving drugs such as monoclonal antibodies. Our early technology partners include many of the world's most successful biopharmaceutical companies.
