Overview: Reboot Rx is a nonprofit startup that enables cancer patients to access new and affordable treatments faster than traditional approaches using repurposed generic drugs. Hundreds of available, safe, and inexpensive non-cancer generic drugs could be repurposed for treating cancer. We are leveraging AI technology and innovative funding models to find the most promising repurposing opportunities and generate the necessary evidence for them to be used as cancer treatments. Working with us is a great opportunity to get hands-on experience at a cutting-edge social impact startup at the intersection of AI, biology, and medicine.
Healthcare policy researcher role: Help research and implement new funding models for clinical trials with repurposed generic drugs, such as outcomes-based contracts or public policy changes. Research legislation and key stakeholders, and draft articles and concept papers. The ideal candidate has experience with health policy and has a strong background in research and writing.
Details: You should be passionate about expanding treatment options for cancer patients, a hardworking self-starter with attention to detail, and effective at both independent and collaborative work. You will work directly with the founders (https://rebootrx.org/team) and will interact with other members of the highly cross-disciplinary team. A commitment of 12-20 hours per week for at least 10-12 weeks is preferred. The team currently operates out of Boston and Portland, Maine. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, the work will be conducted remotely with regular virtual meetings and communications.
