Cell Processing Technologist

Company: Talaris Therapeutics
Location: Louisville
Posted on: February 16, 2020

Job Description:

Talaris Therapeutics, Inc.("Talaris") is developing a breakthrough, one-time cell therapy to enable patients who receive a living donor kidney transplant to no longer require lifelong immunosuppression, without rejecting their donated organ. Achieving durable, drug-free immune tolerance to a donated organ has been referred to as a " Holy Grail " of organ transplant. In a ground-breaking, phase 2 study conducted between 2008 - 2016, our lead therapy, FCR001, enabled 70% of patients to be weaned off all immunosuppression within 12 months of their kidney transplant. No tolerized patient has had to resume immunosuppression. We have followed these patients for an average of almost five years since their transplant, and the longest for over ten years. Our single-dose cell therapy has also shown the potential to induce durable remission of certain types of severe auto-immune diseases, and to benefit other solid organ transplant patients. Talaris has announced a $100M private financing from leading life sciences investors and has initiated a Phase 3 pivotal trial of our therapy in living donor kidney transplant patients. We also expect to initiate two Phase 2 trials of our therapy in additional indications in 2020. Our cell processing facility and most of our operations are based in Louisville, KY, and we also have a corporate office in Boston, MA.Job Title: Cell Processing TechnologistSchedule: Full-timeLocation: Louisville, KYJob DescriptionThis position is responsible for day-to-day operations related to the conduct of Clinical Phase I, II, and III trials in cell therapy.
