This will include the design and optimisation of primers and probes, development of DNA and RNA extraction techniques and the design, optimisation, validation and running of Q-PCR assays in relation to bio-potency testing, bio-distribution and persistence studies, viral load evaluations and genotyping.
An experienced manager, you will be a committed and passionate leader with a desire to build a highly respected, customer-focused team.
