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.

Small Molecules, Big Thinkers

Headquartered in San Diego, CA, 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 patient-driven 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’re just getting started.

Personal & Professional Passions

We are serious, 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 in and out of the office. We are concert pianists, aspiring chefs, snowboarders, and fanatical supporters of NorCal and Boston sports teams (Note: Yankees fans welcome!). We are always looking for like-minded people to join our community.

“Our team is completely unified in our mission in bringing better cancer therapies to patients. 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
