Description

Job Overview:

Do you have immunohistochemistry experience and want to be part of a dedicated team in one of the leading contract research organisations?

 

Do you want the opportunity to work with a dedicated team of immunohistochemistry specialists performing Tissue Cross Reactivity studies?

 

Do you want to get involved with driving and implementing new technologies and techniques within Specialty Pathology Services?

 

Labcorp Drug Development is a leading contract research organization (CRO) that provides contract research services to the drug, medical device and diagnostics, crop protection and chemical industries.

 

The Specialty Pathology Services Department at Labcorp Drug Development, Harrogate, is one of the leading proponents of Tissue Cross Reactivity studies. Tissue cross-reactivity (TCR) assessment of a therapeutic antibody or antibody-like molecule is an essential pre-clinical investigation that forms part of a regulatory Investigational New Drug (IND) or Clinical Trial Application (CTA). TCR is a series of ex-vivo immunohistochemical (IHC) screening assays performed primarily to identify off-target binding, but also to potentially identify previously unknown sites of on‑target binding.

 

As part of the Specialty Pathology Services team, you would be involved with aiding our clients with the safety evaluation, often first in human trials, of a diverse range of antibody and antibody-like molecules. The data generated in the laboratory will help in understanding the cellular binding activity of a test compound and its implications for downstream assessment and potential future use in humans.
