PATH is currently recruiting for a Clinical Research Officer to coordinate with the Drug Development program in Seattle/San Francisco to work in the Drug Development Group.

PATH is an international organization that drives transformative innovation to save lives and improve health, especially among women and children. We accelerate innovation across five platforms-vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations-that harness our entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity. By mobilizing partners around the world, we take innovation to scale, working alongside countries primarily in Africa and Asia to tackle their greatest health needs. Together, we deliver measurable results that disrupt the cycle of poor health.

PATH’s Drug Development Program (DRG) is working to develop and ensure availability and accessibility of safe and effective new medicines for diseases disproportionately affecting people in developing countries. By combining entrepreneurial energy, pharmaceutical expertise, and an innovative product development partnership model, we challenge the assumption that pharmaceutical research and development is too expensive to create the new medicines that the developing world desperately needs.
