The main function of this role is to design and implement biochemical and biophysical assays to screen and understand the inhibitors discovered in their research group.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to;
•   Design, develop and run protein-peptide and protein-protein interaction assays (SPR, TR-FRET, FP) in low and high-throughput settings as well as custom target-specific mechanistic assays.
•  Purify, label, and characterize recombinant proteins for assays and structural studies.
•  Collaborate with members of our screening teams, and present research plans and results within the team and senior management as well as scientific conferences
