Job Description

OUR PATH TO PRODUCTSA big leap forward in designer biologics to reach untapped biology of the adaptive immune systemThe role of adaptive immunity in autoimmunity and transplantation makes it one of the most prolific areas of biopharmaceutical research. Within both arms of the adaptive immune response ? the humoral response and the cell-mediated response ? aberrant function drives a diverse set of human diseases.Humoral immune mechanisms result in Ig-productionthat is directly pathogenic in a wide range of diseases such as myasthenia gravis, IgA nephropathy and alloantibody transplant rejection.Cell-mediated immunity involving the interactions of immune cellsdirectly causes multiple diseases such as vitiligo, bullous pemphigoid, vasculitis, multiple sclerosis and lupus. Seismic?s lead pipeline programs include two distinct drug product areas that, separately, address both arms of dysregulated adaptive immunity.Humoral immunitydiscovering and developing designer therapeutics to modulate Ig-mediated autoimmunityCell-mediated immunitydesigning biologics to target multiple pathways simultaneously to address diseases of cell-mediated autoimmunityAlan CraneFounder & ChairmanAlan joined Polaris Partners in 2002 and serves as an entrepreneur partner.
