Therabest USA is a discovery/clinical-stage biotech company. Our focus is the development of immunotherapy in the setting of allogeneic adoptive transfer along with immune-modulating biologics that improve human wellbeing. Based on our phase I/IIa clinical trial experience of autologous immune cell therapeutics for moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis, we expand our translational research to another level of precision medicine.

Our programs include Off-the-Shelf production of immune cells for universal cell therapy products as well as precision biologics. Our technology educates the immune system to target/attack specific abnormal cells as well as to enhance the immune response to eliminate hematological and solid cancer. Major technologies include regenerative medicinal strategy, allogeneic innate/adoptive cell therapy that can be controlled by biologics, and disease micro-environments. 

Our research focuses on the development of efficient manufacturing processes of safe, effective off-the-shelf immune cells for universal application in immunotherapy and immune-modulating biologics. To achieve this goal, we develop/use proprietary gene-editing/transfer technique, antibody development/humanization, establish non-clinical disease models. Our novel disease target/attach technology will allow a safe/effective modality to cure the disease. Our platform will allow the fast development of disease target therapy along with universal cell therapeutics. 

Therabest USA is seeking a highly motivated individual with expertise in immunotherapy and allogeneic adoptive cell transfer biology to join a multidisciplinary global team dedicated to the novel cellular therapeutics. The candidate should be familiar with antibody engineering, NK cell biology and in adaptive cell therapy model development. The selected candidate will report directly to CEO and work with two junior scientists and lab operational scientists.
