Chief Medical Officer

Mar 4, 2024

Mercy BioAnalytics, Inc. is a biotechnology company committed to reducing suffering and saving lives through the early detection of cancer. We have developed a novel liquid biopsy approach that measures co-localized biomarkers on the surface of tumor-derived extracellular vesicles. We have initially deployed this technology in two clinical programs: one for the detection of ovarian cancer in asymptomatic post-menopausal women, and one for the detection of lung cancer in high-risk individuals. Our ovarian cancer program has demonstrated significantly superior sensitivity and specificity vs currently available technologies in multiple independent clinical cohorts, and we are now preparing for clinical validation and engagement with key external stakeholders including regulatory bodies, payers, guidelines groups, and patient advocates. Mercy is well-funded, with top-tier venture capital partners, an exceptional group of clinical advisors, and a mission-oriented management team with a track record of success.

We are looking for a passionate individual to join our mission as the Chief Medical Officer, initially in a fractional capacity. This individual will play a critical role in the design and execution of clinical studies for test validation and regulatory submission, will have oversight of Mercy’s clinical laboratory, and will be instrumental in supporting Mercy’s path to test reimbursement through the development of robust clinical evidence. The position provides medical oversight, expertise, and leadership to ensure the delivery of products with the highest quality, safety, and effectiveness that enhance patient outcomes and physician wellness.
