Chinook Therapeutics is a biotechnology company developing precision medicines for patients with kidney diseases. We apply our proprietary research platform to discover and develop therapeutics with novel mechanisms of action against key kidney disease pathways. The development focus is on rare, serious disorders with clear unmet medical needs and defined and rapid clinical development opportunities. Chinook recently in-licensed a late-stage product, atrasentan, and plans to initiate a phase 3 trial for chronic kidney disease during 2020. Our pipeline has several other internal programs at the validation and lead optimization stages, the first of which is rapidly progressing to enter clinical trials by 2021. We are also evaluating business development opportunities for early and late-stage clinical assets to enhance the pipeline.
Chinook has raised a $65 million Series A financing from top tier venture capital firms Versant Ventures, Apple Tree Partners, and Samsara BioCapital. We are a growing team of approximately 30 employees and are based in Vancouver, British Columbia and Seattle, Washington.
Chinook has a new opportunity for a Head of Human Resources, responsible for leading all aspects of the human resources function at Chinook. This is a hands-on position that is responsible to ensure HR programs and strategy support the achievement of Chinook’s long- and short-term strategic goals. The Head of Human Resources will report to the CEO and will be based in Seattle with some travel to our Vancouver office. This person will play a key role in the development of the HR infrastructure and will help shape the cultural trajectory of our growing company.
