Access to Advanced Health Institute is a Seattle-based nonprofit biotech institute that is undergoing a transformation to lead a global coalition to fight infectious disease and address health disparities and inequities worldwide. We think it’s unfair that where a person lives or how much money they make dictates their access to life-changing medicine. We’re looking for people who want to join us in increasing accessibility to tools that harness the immune system and allow a healthy life, free of illness and disease, regardless of geography or socio-economic status – from compassion and collaboration come change.
We will serve as a center for innovation and collaboration in vaccine and cancer immunotherapy research and development, early-phase GMP manufacturing, and training of the next generation of scientists and manufacturing teams to achieve our mission. This is where the high-quality science of an academic research organization and the product-development capabilities of a biotech company meet.
