    Recruitment of Research Associate/Senior Research Associate at IDEAYA Biosciences, San Francisco

    About IDEAYA Biosciences:

    Biotechnology company IDEAYA Biosciences (NASDAQ: IDYA) develops synthetic lethality-focused precision medicine for cancer patients using DNA sequencing and other molecular diagnostics. The company is publicly traded. Small molecule drug discovery is integrated with biomarker identification and validation to identify patient populations most likely to benefit from the treatments we are developing. In addition to targeting oncogenic pathways directly, we are also using these capabilities to develop synthetic lethality, a new class of precision medicine targets. By using a variety of approaches, we hope to better match the right medicine with the right patient and thereby achieve a more robust clinical outcome.

    For certain pipeline programmes, IDEAYA and GSK have recently announced a historic strategic partnership known as Synthetic Lethality. The IDEAYA-GSK partnership is game-changing because it enables both companies to build a Synthetic Lethality platform and pipeline that is unmatched in the industry. Visit for more details.
