Job Title: Quality & Regulatory Officer

The Company

PredictImmune was created in early 2017 as a spin-out from the Department of Medicine, University of Cambridge UK.

It is a new generation molecular diagnostics company offering a unique approach for the prognosis of immune-mediated diseases such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis etc. with a mission of “enabling better treatment and outcomes for patients with chronic immune mediated diseases”.

PredictImmune has developed and is launching its first prognostic test that is simple, robust and based on RT-PCR with a unique software algorithm for identification of patients with a high or low risk of disease progression in the next 12-18 months, using whole blood samples for use in routine in clinical laboratories. We are the first company to offer predictive tests in Inflammatory Bowel Disease and aim to develop tests for other immune-mediated diseases which will facilitate personalised treatment and thereby improve patient outcomes and health economics.

PredictImmune will provide its proprietary technology as both a laboratory service and as a kit depending on the needs of global markets. Currently PredictImmune has built a strong internal development and commercialisation team to creatively develop, validate and bring to market these unique and proprietary Prognostic tests via strategic partnering models throughout the world, while carrying out partnerships with a number of key Pharma companies in the Immunology sector on patient stratification and clinical studies.
