Achilles Therapeutics is a high growth clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of T cell therapies targeting clonal neoantigens for the treatment of cancer. Originating from pioneering research at Cancer Research UK (CRUK), the Francis Crick Institute and University College London (UCL), we use DNA sequencing data from each patient, together with our proprietary PELEUS™ bioinformatics platform, to identify clonal neoantigens specific to that patient. From this, we develop personalised T cell therapies and currently have two programs in the clinic for the treatment of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and Metastatic Malignant Melanoma.
As a company, we are fast-paced and trailblazing. We are breaking new ground with our science, creating products that have never been made. As no-one has done what we are doing before, there is no playbook to copy. This means we must innovate, adapt and collaborate across our organisation, working together to solve novel problems. This entrepreneurial spirit and approach run through our company and those who thrive here are able to cope with anything that is thrown at them, enjoy ambiguity and thrive on making things happen even when there is not a detailed brief. We work hard and deliver a lot.Role Summary
