ImmunoMet is a clinical stage biotech utilizing cellular metabolism to develop novel anti-tumor and immune-metabolism therapies. ImmunoMet was founded in 2015 as a spin-off from HanAll Biopharma, a mid-sized Korean pharma company, and is headquartered at Houston JLABs near MD Anderson. Our lead molecule, IM156, is an OXPHOS inhibitor which has demonstrated impressive in vivo efficacy in resistant solid tumors and is in Phase 1 studies. ImmunoMet owns a large biguanide library which forms an engine to develop new products and has initiated a second development program in fibrosis.
ImmunoMet is searching for a Research Scientist at their Houston laboratories. The successful candidate will work in the lab directly with biguanide compounds from our library and human cell lines. The projects include screening of compounds for various biologic parameters and then further evaluating promising prospects. Once laboratory data has been generated, the Research Scientist will compile, analyze and report on the data.
