Help us improve lives

Join the Kinnate Team

At Kinnate Biopharma, we are dedicated to improving the lives of those suffering from the most aggressive cancers through patient-driven, precision medicine. We understand that #PatientsAreWaiting for more effective targeted therapies today, not tomorrow. By using next-generation genomic, molecular, and medicinal chemistry tools, we are building a potentially best- and first-in-class portfolio of kinase inhibitors targeting cancers that are not addressed by currently approved therapies.

Working with Us

Small Molecules, Big Thinkers

Our expanding team brings together big thinkers from around the globe—experts in medicine, chemistry, biology, genomics, project management, and R&D operations.

“Kinnatians” are thought leaders in structure-based drug discovery, translational research, and precision oncology medicine. We are a close-knit, solutions-oriented community with a passion for serving under-served cancer populations. When others give up, we keep going.

Personal & Professional Passions

We are focused, and delve deep into the science, but we also love what we do and have fun while doing it. We support and celebrate our teammates life moments in and out of the office. We are concert pianists, aspiring chefs, snowboarders, and fanatical fans of NorCal and Boston sports teams (Note: Yankees fans welcome!). We are looking for people who share our values and drive to join our community.

“Our team is driven by the urgency and knowledge that patients are waiting for new cancer medicines targeted for their specific type of disease. While we are serious, focused and delve deep into the science, we love what we do and have fun doing it.”

– Nima Farzan, CEO of Kinnate
