Our mission is to develop groundbreaking therapies to reverse mitochondrial dysfunction by leveraging a deep mechanistic understanding of mitochondrial biology.
At Pretzel, we are developing first-in-class therapeutics that can address mitochondrial dysfunction at its roots. By taking aim at the genetic drivers of mitochondrial dysfunction, we believe our approach could be effective across a wide range of diseases which lack meaningful treatment options today. Pretzel was founded by some of the world’s foremost academics in mitochondrial biology, and we benefit from the leadership of accomplished experts in drug discovery, drug development, and company formation.
We are proud to be backed by a group of distinguished global investors who share our mission. The company is in an expansion phase, including building our organization in Sweden. As a Junior Program Manager, you will support the management of multinational teams of researchers, consultants, and contractors to advance projects focused on developing new therapies for mitochondrial diseases.
