Working collaboratively with the in vitro and in vivo teams, the In Vitro Research Associate (RA) will independently read and understand study protocols and relevant SOPs prior to performing associated duties on designated research projects. The RA will perform in vitro portions of a study cycle for contract research studies including, but not limited to RNA/DNA purification, real-time PCR/RT-PCR;PCR, reagent and dose formulations for in vivo studies, ELISA, ELISPOT, Multicolor flow cytometry (cell preparation and analysis), preparation of virus stock, virus titration, antibody neutralization, and T-cell assays, cell preparation and culture (human and animal cell isolation, magnetic bead cell purification) and additional assay system development based on project needs. The successful candidate will also generates in vitro forms, including study and formulation forms, data labels, and data files and performs data quality control review according to SOPs or study protocols.
