Clinical Outreach Contracts Analyst at OpenBiome

 

OpenBiome is a nonprofit stool bank, expanding clinical access to fecal transplants and catalyzing research on the human microbiome. Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is a promising new therapy for C. difficile, the most common hospital-acquired infection in the country. OpenBiome provides microbiota preparations to clinicians performing FMT, and supports clinical trials and basic research investigating new applications of microbiome-based therapies


Five years ago, OpenBiome started the first public stool banking service, and we have grown to redefine the standard of care for this emerging field. Today, we support FMT programs at over 1000 medical centers across all 50 states and 7 countries, and have delivered over 30,000 treatments for recurrent C. difficile patients. We have also developed a new oral formulation for delivering FMT, published dozens of scholarly works and have supported over 30 clinical studies to identify new applications for FMT. As the leader in this exciting new field, OpenBiome is uniquely positioned to continue to expand access to care and discover new applications for microbial interventions. We are searching for passionate teammates eager to support this mission.
