Senior GL Accountant
About the Company:
Dren Bio (the “Company”) is a privately held, pre-clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing therapeutic antibodies for the treatment of cancer, autoimmune and other serious diseases. The Company’s management team and scientific advisors have profound expertise covering the discovery and development of engineered antibodies designed to selectively target and deplete pathological cells. Dren Bio’s pipeline is currently comprised of two distinct drug discovery programs. The Company’s first program surrounds DR-01, its lead product candidate, which induces antibody-mediated killing of a cell type that is responsible for a multitude of hematologic malignancies and plays a key role in various autoimmune diseases. The Company’s second program surrounds its Targeted Myeloid Engager and Phagocytosis Platform, a proprietary bispecific antibody-based technology that provides a novel mechanism of action to selectively engage myeloid cells for (1) targeted depletion of pathologic cells and other disease-inducing agents and (2) inducing localized immunostimulation. The engagement of antigen presenting cells has the potential to elicit a sustained, durable response.
