Project Description

Description

  • Our company will continue to focus on advancing therapies that are the first or best of their kind.      
  • Our company’s Technical Operations group is responsible for creating our drugs for use in clinical trials and for scaling production of those drugs for the commercial market. These engineers, technicians, scientists and support staff build and maintain company's cutting-edge manufacturing processes and sites,  provide quality assurance and quality control to ensure we meet regulatory standards, and procure the needed goods and services to support manufacturing and coordinating the worldwide movement of our drugs to patients.  Come join our team and make a meaningful impact on patients’ lives.
