You and your team will work with our Scientific Advisory Board in identifying, prioritizing and selecting targets, directing assay development and high-throughput screens, lead identification and optimization and pre-clinical development. You will be responsible for building a pipeline of valuable, proprietary drug compounds, demonstrating the enormous power of our technology, delivering successful results with a select number of partnerships with global pharmaceutical companies and creating a robust intellectual property estate.
