CuraGen Corporation is a dynamic and rapidly expanding biotechnology company
on a mission to systematically extract from the human genome those disease
related genes for which therapeutics can be successfully designed.  CuraGen
is pioneering a novel systematic approach to developing pharmaceuticals for
treating a broad range of human diseases.  In pursuit of its
interdisciplinary approach, CuraGen has assembled a research team with
expertise in molecular biology, biochemistry, statistical mechanics,
computational methods, mathematics, nanofabrication, and spectroscopy. 
Close ties with several major academic laboratories complement our own
resources and facilities.  We seek creative and motivated individuals with
the dedication and ambition to succeed in an entrepreneurial setting.
