Oxford Genetics’ mission is to pioneer technologies that streamline the discovery, development and production of biologics, cell and gene therapies. This is enabled through cutting edge bioinformatics, including algorithms and tools, that drive the rational design of complex biological systems at the DNA level.
These biological systems are then assembled on automated platforms using a Lego-like core DNA system, called SnapFast™. Examples of this approach include the development of optimised platforms for the discovery, engineering and production of antibodies; the creation of improved viral vectors, packaging and production cell lines for lentivirus and AAV manufacture; and CRISPR libraries and CRISPR cell line engineering.
Oxford Genetics is located within purpose-fitted laboratories and modern offices at the Oxford Science Park, just South of Oxford. We are in a phase of rapid expansion and are seeking highly motivated and enthusiastic people to join the team and help facilitate the next stage of our development as a company. We aim to be both innovative and entrepreneurial in everything we do – join us and contribute to this exciting journey!
