Position - (Sr) Business Development Associate

Immunia’s Mission Statement

Through single-cell biology, computational biology, and artificial intelligence, Immunai is reprogramming the immune system to discover and develop novel therapeutics.


Immunai is a fast-paced, innovative startup operating at the intersection of immunology and artificial intelligence. We are a multidisciplinary team of immunologists, computer scientists, engineers, physicians, mathematicians, computational biologists, operators, and entrepreneurs singularly focused on solving the audacious challenge of mapping the human immune system. Backed by some of the leading scientific minds in immunology, oncology, and single cell genomics, we are up for the challenge.

Immunai has already begun building AMICA (the “Annotated Multi-omic Immune Cell Atlas”) by mapping millions of immune cells and their functions. This atlas will play an important role in developing novel therapeutics and diagnostics in numerous disease areas, including oncology and autoimmune disorders.

The immune system, with its trillions of cells and thousands of cell types and states, has been impossible to decode until now; we believe recent advances in single cell genomics, ML, and high-performance compute will open up new understanding in how drugs interact with immune cells, and how the cells in turn interact with disease. These insights will, in turn, be used to boost clinical response to different therapies.
