Chinook Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing precision medicines for patients with kidney diseases. We apply our proprietary research platform to discover and develop therapies with novel mechanisms of action in key kidney disease pathways. Our development focus is on rare, serious disorders with clear unmet medical needs and well-defined clinical development opportunities. Our lead program, atrasentan, is a potent and selective, small molecule inhibitor of the endothelin A receptor that is planned to move into a phase 3 registrational trial for IgA nephropathy and a phase 2 basket trial for glomerular diseases, in 2021. We are advancing BION-1301, an anti-APRIL monoclonal antibody, in an ongoing phase 1b trial for IgA nephropathy, and CHK-336, an oral small molecule LDHA inhibitor for primary hyperoxaluria, towards trial initiation in 2021. Our pipeline also includes several additional preclinical programs at the validation and lead optimization stages, and we continue to actively evaluate business development opportunities around early and late-stage clinical assets in kidney disease.
Chinook completed the third quarter of 2020 with over $290 million in operating capital and trades on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol, “KDNY.” The company has locations in Vancouver, BC, Seattle, WA and Berkeley, CA.
Chinook Therapeutics has an opportunity for an energetic and collaborative medicinal chemist to support the design, synthesis, characterization and analysis of small-molecule therapeutic compounds. This is a great role for a highly motivated, independent chemist who is willing to learn and take on responsibilities associated with the drug discovery process. The Research Associate will be able to work collaboratively in a team environment and effectively communicate her/his ideas both orally and in writing. This person will be working together with members of the chemistry department and individuals in biology/DMPK/pharmacology with the goal of developing precision therapies to help patients with kidney diseases.
