Welcome to Ichor
Ichor Therapeutics is a vertically integrated pre-clinical contract research organization that broadly focuses on the study of aging and aging pathways. The company offers a number of services and programs to support its clients and strategic priorities. Ichor operates from its corporate offices and research laboratories in rural LaFayette, NY (just south of Syracuse). The company is eager to engage collaborators and clients in industry and academia who share its vision of delivering next generation therapies for the illnesses of aging.
We build our own talent
Fundamental to the Ichor culture is an emphasis on professional development. Our team is not only evaluated on what they already know, but also on an ability to obtain new skills, work through diverse challenges, and anticipate and preempt complications within company workflows. Our backgrounds span diverse disciplines in the life sciences, engineering, computer science, and business. Team members are encouraged to embrace this diversity as a professional development opportunity, and to obtain cross training in areas unrelated to their core competencies.
We work towards a vision, not for a company
Building a successful company is a side-effect of what we do in the pursuit of our vision. We are intrinsically motivated to create positive change in the world, and this philosophy extends to all aspects of company operations. We engage our local community on several levels, from volunteer service and educational programs, to green initiatives. At our core, we are committed to delivering the next generation of pharmaceuticals. Our burden of proof is to make products that work. We eagerly take on this challenge every day in the laboratory.
