Experience: 6+ years


Built upon the belief that nature is the world’s most powerful medicinal chemist and enzyme engineer, Radiant is deploying state-of-the-art technologies to access genetic diversity that is currently hidden in unexplored environments. We are building a search engine for the world’s genes and building infrastructure to deliver them to end-customers in diverse markets.

Historically, drug discovery is a slow, cumbersome, expensive endeavor, requiring massive departments at large pharmaceutical companies. At Radiant Genomics, we are building a proprietary “genomic search engine,” to accelerate this discovery process by taking advantage of advances in next generation sequencing and informatics. Think: racks of computers at the speed of computation vs. stacks of petri dishes over the course of decades.
