Work at F1

We are an adventurous, nimble team of biotech professionals with deep and varied experiences across the healthcare field

Why we come to work each day

Our shared passion for making a lasting difference in the fight against cancer, and for putting the patient first, is the driving force behind our cohesion as a company. Although innovation is at the core of our mission, we always keep the patient at the forefront of our work and in our minds.

What to Expect

  • A tangible impact in emerging field

  • ​Unbiased innovation

  • ​Opportunity to learn

  • ​Collaborative and challenging environment

  • ​Competitive compensation

  • ​Efficient, global work environment

  • Working in the field of oncology can be enormously rewarding and exciting—in our segment, adoptive cellular therapies, we are currently experiencing a revolution in the treatment of hematologic malignancies.  If this can be extended to solid tumor malignancies, adoptive cellular therapy could present one of the most memorable scientific advances against cancer since the discovery of the monoclonal antibody. Join us, and be part of the vanguard in the fight against cancer.

  • At F1, all of our founding technology has been developed in-house. This means that we are not beholden to outside interests or emotional attachments. We let data select the optimal composition of CAB-CARs without biases from previous work or external forces.

  • Our senior management and advisory teams consist of some of the brightest and most experienced minds in biotech, synthetic biology, immunology, and others. Working at F1, as a small company, provides ease of access and direct mentoring from these leaders that is rarely possible at a larger company.

  • As a startup, we realize that we will not succeed in creating successful therapies unless we work together, as a team. At F1 we are not afraid to roll up our sleeves, pool our experience, and “wear many hats” when required to accomplish critical milestones. This can at times be quite challenging, and is not for the faint of heart. But if you love science, and are dedicated to finding a “complete response” where none exists today, then you will fit in at F1.

  • We offer a comprehensive benefits package that is competitive with much larger companies. Some of what we offer includes: medical, dental, vision, retirement plans, and paid time off.

  • Our global structure provides the opportunity to experience other cultures around the world through cross-team management, interactions, and discussions, as well as visits to our other site locations. Having offices and laboratories spread across the globe means that—as a company—progress never stops, which helps us optimize efficiency and reduces downtime.

  • Cancer feeds on the hubris of scientists that believe they already have the answers, but is vulnerable to those that absorb the data and adapt as rapidly as cancer can evolve.

    Greg Frost, CEO
  • F1 Oncology is a special company to work for because we share a passion and dedication to our mission of bringing novel and transformative living medicines to cancer patients. Every day is new and exciting because of our collaborative and creative culture, which leads to technological breakthroughs that we all get to take part in. Working at F1 Oncology is more than just a job to me, it’s a chance to make a difference.

    James Gaudette, Sr. Research Associate
  • F1 Oncology truly takes a creative approach to cancer therapy. Working for F1 Oncology has enabled me to grow immensely as a researcher through pushing the limits of what I thought was possible in scientific research.

    Ben Lopez, Research Associate
  • I joined F1 Oncology to be at the forefront of the development of novel and innovative Gene and Cellular Therapies. We are pioneering in the field of CAR-T therapy, and this—building from all our activities here at F1Oncology—is a very challenging but also exciting and rewarding job to be a part of!

    Frederic Vigant, Senior Scientist, Vectorology and Biosafety
  • I enjoy working for F1 Oncology because I love the challenge of trying to figure out how to cure (what is thought to be) incurable cancer and to help people who are suffering. I enjoy working with people that care about their company. We all support each other and work together to make ideas a reality. I enjoy appreciation received from people I am working with, which significantly outweighs the hard work.
