Research Scientist: Nephrotoxicity & 3D Kidney Modeling

Company Description
DLOC Biosystems is a biotech contract research organization (CRO) that offers preclinical trials on drugs developed by pharma companies using state-of-the-art organ-on-chip technology. It takes $2.6B and 12 years to develop one successful drug because 90% of drugs fail at the late and expensive clinical trial stages. The reason is that preclinical results do not determine the clinical trial failures because tissues grown in the lab do not resemble the tissues in the body. As a solution, DLOC’s organ-on-chip technology focuses on providing the most accurate drug testing services by growing the most in-body mimetic organ models on-chip.

DLOC’s innovative technology has the potential to make drug discovery 50% safer and 40% faster & cheaper. DLOC is achieving this aim by creating patented organ-on-chip devices, automated operating systems, and AIpowered real-time control & data analytics. The devices can grow tissues with microenvironments that resemble the in vivo human tissues, where drugs can be tested, and their therapeutic index can be better predicted.

Role Description and Key Activities
• Conduct experiments to model an organ-on-chip kidney model to test drug-induced nephrotoxicity.
• Provide day-to-day management of the lab
• Carry out standard molecular biology and biochemistry methods with minimal supervision.
