Assets includes ICOS agonist, OX40 agonist, TLR-4 agonist, and other IO agents.

    The Medical Director will be responsible for all aspects related to the clinical development of either a single therapy or combinations.

    In this role, the Medical Director will belong to multi-functional drug development team(s) and will work closely with scientists, statisticians, and other physicians in the discovery and translational medicine groups.

    The Medical Director will be reporting within and managing clinical development team(s) consisting of physicians and clinical scientists, and will provide critical clinical guidance from the selection of a drug candidate to the initial proof-of-concept in clinical trials passing through phase I, II, and pivotal phase IIII, including regulatory filing and registration.
