Mathematical Modeler Positions available open

Company Overview

Immunetrics is a bio-simulation company that specializes in in-silico modeling. Immunetrics modeling technology is intended to provide critical information to drug developers to accelerate and improve the drug discovery and development process by providing clinically predictive models of disease.  Immunetrics' bio-simulation technology enables drug discovery and
development firms to gain comprehensive insights into the potential problems facing a compound before investing significant resources into time-intensive and costly animal testing and human clinical trials. The Immunetrics models are based on dynamical systems modeling, i.e. systems of differential and algebraic equations, which represent the actual biological mechanisms that drive components of the system.
