Research Technician

Idris Oncology

It’s high time to put an end to today’s hit-and-miss cancer therapies! We’ve known for decades that cancer constantly evolves and adapts, yet we’re still blindly hoping that one or maybe two chemotherapies will get rid of the cancer...

Idris Oncology want to deal with this problem once and for all. We want to provide the tool that allows doctors to always know how a cancer is evolving and adapt the therapy accordingly. Hundreds of other companies have attempted to provide that tool by using blood samples, but they have all failed because there are simply not enough cancer cells in a blood sample. That's why we’re developing a ‘fishing wire’ that captures many cancer cells over time in the bloodstream. Providing large amounts of cancer cells often and pain-free will finally unlock the true potential of the dozens of amazing novel diagnostics and therapeutics!

You can be a part of our push to radically improve cancer treatment! Our company is young and small, meaning that you will make a significant and tangible impact. Our team is amazing, and the company is growing.
