Director of Business Development & Alliance Management

Company: Arvinas
Location: New Haven
Posted on: September 12, 2020

Job Description:

Open Positions : Director, Business Development & Alliance Management Arvinas is a clinical-stage bio-pharmaceutical company pioneering the development of small molecules known as PROTAC® (PROteolysis Targeting Chimera) protein degraders, which degrade disease-causing proteins by harnessing a natural cellular mechanism. Our proprietary PROTAC®-based drug paradigm induces protein degradation, rather than protein inhibition, using the ubiquitin proteasome system and offers the advantage of potentially targeting “undruggable” as well as “druggable” elements of the proteome. This greatly expands the ability to create drugs for many new, previously unapproachable targets. For more information, visit www.arvinas.com .
