Careers

Join us in our quest!

Mercy BioAnalytics is on a mission to improve and save the lives of people across the globe through the early detection of cancer, when it is most curable.

We’ve developed a process which uses nano-particles that are extraordinarily abundant in blood and carry information about their parent cell – known as extracellular vesicles, or EVs – to detect stage I cancer. We are seeking dedicated and passionate individuals to join us in realizing this vision.
