United Therapeutics Senior Manager, Laboratory Operations (IVIVA) in Woburn, Massachusetts

The job details are as follows:

What We Do

We build on the strength of our research and development expertise and a distinctive, entrepreneurial culture that encourages diversity, innovation, creativity, sustainability, and, simply, fun. Since inception, our mission has been to find a cure for pulmonary arterial hypertension and other life-threatening diseases. Toward this goal we have successfully gained FDA approval for five medicines, we are always conducting new clinical trials, and we are working to create an unlimited supply of manufactured organs for transplantation.

We are the first publicly-traded biotech or pharmaceutical company to take the form of a public benefit corporation (PBC). Our public benefit purpose is to provide a brighter future for patients through (a) the development of novel pharmaceutical therapies; and (b) technologies that expand the availability of transplantable organs. At the same time, we seek to provide our shareholders with superior financial performance and our communities with earth-sensitive energy utilization.

Our company was founded by an entrepreneur whose daughter was diagnosed with a life-threatening condition. She sought to find treatment options and a cure for her daughter and patients like her. We are founder-led, and relentless in our pursuit of “medicines for life”. We continue to research and develop treatments for cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, and other orphan diseases.

Millions worldwide are living with chronic kidney disease (CKD) or diabetes. Management and maintenance therapies are ongoing, expensive and often undermine the person's quality of life. Their only hope for cure is an organ transplant. At Iviva, a subsidiary of United Therapeutics Corporation, we are working to transform the status quo by developing advanced organ therapeutics that can offer patients with organ dysfunction a cure and a normal life.
