Black Diamond Therapeutics is a precision oncology medicine company pioneering the discovery and development of small molecule, tumor-agnostic therapies. Black Diamond targets undrugged mutations in patients with genetically defined cancers for whom limited treatment options currently exist. Black Diamond is built upon a deep understanding of cancer genetics, protein structure and function, and medicinal chemistry. The Company’s proprietary technology platform, Mutation-Allostery-Pharmacology, or MAP, platform, is designed to allow Black Diamond to analyze population-level genetic sequencing data to identify oncogenic mutations that promote cancer across tumor types, group these mutations into families and develop a single small molecule therapy in a tumor-agnostic manner that targets a specific family of mutations.
The Medical Director will be responsible for clinical research activities pertaining to Black Diamond's lead clinical asset, BDTX-189 as well as future clinical candidates as they move from discovery into IND-enabling activities. The Medical Director will engage relevant scientific/medical experts and key opinion leaders in order to manage clinical data generation from company-sponsored trials and other sources with the goal of obtaining regulatory approval for patients with an unmet medical need.
The ideal candidate will be a medical oncologist or equivalent with a proven track-record in leading targeted therapy clinical protocols in patients with relevant solid tumors. The role will have the opportunity to contribute on the clinical development of novel drug candidates intended to treat patients in a tumor agnostic fashion.
