Founded in 2015, Zetagen is a private, clinical-stage, biopharmaceutical company dedicated to driving breakthrough innovation in the treatment of metastatic bone cancers and osteologic interventions. Our multi-patented, ZetaMet™ technology is a first-of-its kind molecular pathway designed to suspend cancer, inhibit pain, and regenerate bone. Zetagen exclusively-licensed the platform technology from the State University of New York in 2016.
The Postdoctoral Research Associate will be working directly with our Director of Scientific Operations and will be responsible for designing, conducting, and analyzing experiments that will directly impact the development of multiple product lines. You will get hands-on experience helping to build an innovative biotechnology company, learn about launching medical products.
The Zetagen technology platform is built on the discovery of a new molecular pathway that inhibits tumor cell growth and stimulates bone stem cells which has allowed us to simultaneously target oncology and orthopedic conditions with novel treatments that promise to dramatically improve the lives of patients.
