Associate Job Description


Eidos Therapeutics, Inc.

Role Title:

Executive Administrator


Eidos Therapeutics is developing a novel treatment for transthyretin (TTR) amyloidosis (ATTR), a progressive, fatal disease affecting multiple organs including the heart and peripheral nerves. Current treatment options focus on managing the symptoms of the conditions, but do not address the underlying cause of the disease: TTR tetramers destabilized by mutations or age. Eidos’ lead compound, AG10, is a small molecule that binds and stabilizes TTR in the blood, preventing the formation of amyloid and potentially halting progression of the disease. Launched in 2016 after years of research supported by Stanford’s TRAM and SPARK programs, Eidos is led by a team of veteran biotechnology executives. Together with patients and physicians, the company aims to provide a safe, effective treatment for ATTR as quickly as possible.
