Possible areas of therapeutic discovery and development include gene therapy, cellular therapeutics (e.g., CAR T cells), or protein therapeutics (e.g., antibody or peptide therapeutics). Initial experiments may focus on target validation or proof-of concept efficacy studies. Later work may focus on maximizing potential therapeutic efficacy and minimizing potential toxicity. When appropriate, scholars will focus on molecules or cells that have potential to enter human clinical trials. Experiments will often involve collaboration with other scientists to create compelling data that drives subsequent research and development decisions. Scholars will engage in biotech-oriented team science that involves milestone-driven research and will collaborate with their mentors to make clear "Go/No-Go" decisions that mirror biotech mindset and processes.
