Envisagenics is a highly multidisciplinary group combining software engineers, UX designers, computational biologists and pharma partners. We look for team players eager to integrate a founding team whose vision is finding better drug targets to cure yet incurable diseases using biological Big Data. We are looking for experts in machine learning, Genomics, RNA-seq and/or biological data interpretation. Candidates will be responsible for developing analytical approaches, hypothesis-driven data interrogation and application of predictive models for the identification of therapeutic targets to make fundamental contributions to understanding disease biology and therapy.
Envisagenics is a bioinformatics startup developing cloud-based solutions to leverage biomedical big data and accelerate R&D therapeutics through machine learning. Envisagenics is a spin-off from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, a biomedical research institute ranked #1 worldwide for scientific impact in the field of genetics. Envisagenics’ core technology, SpliceCore was developed by our CTO while at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in Dr. Adrian Krainer’s Laboratory, a leader in the RNA splicing field who was also a developer of Spinraza (Nusinersen), the first FDA-approved drug to treat children with Spinal Muscular Atrophy. The mission of Envisagenics is to materially advance the world’s ability to cure diseases, discovering new and more efficient drug targets through the analysis and integration of genomic data alongside our pharma partners.
