At the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine the Center for Therapeutic Innovation has built a team of drug discovery and development experts who are engaged in areas of human therapy discovery.

Applicants should have a doctorate and a strong background in contemporary biology and/or medicine. Pharmacology, disease physiology, drug screening, target identification, and animal disease modeling are among the desired skill sets.
