Ellipses Pharma is an international drug development company, focused exclusively on the development of innovative cancer medicines and treatments.

These leaders come from either the forefront of academic research or are practicing clinicians. The Scientific Affairs group is used to validate the science and its clinical application, provide independent clinical consensus to the trial design and source potential development assets.

A key activity will be coordinating the identification, recruitment and onboarding of KOLs into the SAG community and facilitating the SAG on all due diligence projects. The individual will also seek to engage the SAG, and utilise their expertise to inform clinical trial design, as a means of accessing emerging scientific data and treatment protocols.
