The Head of Biometrics

Marengo Therapeutics, Inc., Cambridge, Massachusetts

Position details

Marengo Therapeutics, Inc., a clinical-stage biotech company, develops novel TCR-targeting antibodies that selectively modulate common and disease-specific T cell subsets of the germline TCR repertoire to provide lifelong protection against cancer and other diseases. With a passionate team of dedicated scientists experienced in immunology and oncology, Marengo's proprietary Selective T Cell Activation Repertoire (STAR) platform leverages an extensive biological understanding of T cell function and receptor signaling to create a world in which everyone's immune system can defeat cancer.

About STAR0602

STAR0602 is Marengo's lead program, the first selective T cell activator generated from Marengo's STAR platform; a library of antibodies targeting non-clonal variable (V)ß regions of the TCR fused to different co-stimulatory moieties. STAR0602 selectively targets a common Vb T cell subset present in all cancers and, by combining a novel non-clonal mode of TCR activation with a T cell co-stimulator in the same molecule, promotes expansion of a new population of clonally enriched, effector memory Vb T cells that turbo-charge immune system and promote a durable anti-tumor immune response. STAR0602 has undergone extensive preclinical testing, which demonstrates potent anti-tumor activity in both mouse and human ex vivo tumor models attributed to a distinct mechanism of action from existing cancer immunotherapies.

Kennesaw State University invites applications and nominations for the role of Executive Director of Rural Health and Health Equity Research. Kennesaw State seeks a talented, collaborative, and creative leader to create a vibrant research team to work toward creating a new center aligned with Kennesaw State University's Health and Wellness Research Community. The Executive Director will work with the Office of the Vice President for Research to support, promote, and deliver first-class research and research-based community outcomes related to rural health and health equity.


The Executive Director will be responsible for the growth of research activities in the field of rural health and health equity through collaboration across the University and the state, supported by significant extramural funding. The Executive Director will support initiatives that improve healthcare, particularly in rural areas, and create a comprehensive data platform that informs needs and interventions. The Executive Director will recruit researchers to the Center. Given Kennesaw State's location, the Center will focus its efforts on engaging with, serving, and conducting research in Northwest Georgia.


For more than 60 years, Kennesaw State University has been known for its entrepreneurial spirit and sense of community. A leader in innovative teaching and learning, Kennesaw State is located just north of Atlanta, and combines a suburban setting on two metro-Atlanta campuses in Kennesaw and Marietta. As one of Georgia’s largest universities, Kennesaw State offers undergraduate and graduate degrees, including a growing number of doctoral programs to over 43,000 students. Our high-impact research and Division I athletics also draw students from throughout the region and across the globe. A member of the University System of Georgia, Kennesaw State is a Carnegie-designated doctoral research institution (R2) committed to becoming a world-class academic institution positioned to broaden its academic and research missions and expand its scope on a local, regional, and national level.


The Office of Research will provide the new Center for Rural Health and Health Equity Research with foundational infrastructure and assist the Executive Director in efforts to capitalize on the current faculty's depth and breadth of expertise. The University has seen a rapid increase in external funding for basic research from $4.3 million in 2006 to $43 million over the past five years, leading to new knowledge and discoveries by faculty and hands-on opportunities for students. In FY23, Kennesaw State researchers submitted 195 Proposals, received 152 External Awards, and were awarded $18.7 M in External Funding. Click here for research funding historical data. In Fall 2023, Kennesaw State University Office of Research launched four Research Communities, which represent an interdisciplinary infrastructure resourced to provide meaningful research experiences and workforce preparedness to KSU’s students and invite corporate and community partners to work with the University toward this goal. These Research Communities — Sustainable Communities, Innovative Creativity, Applied Technologies, and Health and Wellness— were identified following an internal examination of the University’s research strengths. The Rural Health and Health Equity Research Center is a part of the Health and Wellness initiative. Given its proximity to rural Georgia, KSU is uniquely positioned to address health disparities between rural and urban areas. The creation of such a center reflects KSU’s commitment to promote health equity.
