Systems Chemical Biologist at Yumanity Therapeutics (posted 7 December 2018)

Description: Yumanity Therapeutics (http://www.yumanity.com/) is transforming drug discovery for neurodegenerative diseases caused by protein misfolding. Even though an estimated 50 million people worldwide suffer from diseases affecting the brain and central nervous system, there are no approved disease-modifying therapies or cures.
