Job Description:

Company Overview:With patients as our guiding stars, Astria Therapeutics' dedicated and passionate team is devoted to bringing life-changing therapies to patients and families impacted by hereditary angioedema (HAE) and rare and niche allergic and immunological diseases. Our company was formed following the acquisition of Quellis Biosciences, Inc., by Catabasis Pharmaceuticals in January 2021, becoming what is now Astria Therapeutics (Nasdaq: ATXS). Our name comes from the Greek word for star, and at Astria, patients are the stars that guide our journey. Their stories inspire us, their successes energize us, and their challenges give us purpose. Our lead program STAR-0215, is a monoclonal antibody inhibitor of plasma kallikrein designed to provide long-active, effective attack prevention for HAE. We also plan to develop a pipeline in the areas of allergy and immunology with a focus on rare and niche indications through internal discovery efforts and in-licensing.
We are well-positioned to continue successfully advancing our current programs - with STAR-0215 on track to potentially demonstrate clinical proof of concept of its differentiated profile and long antibody half-life in Phase 1a - in addition to growing and developing additional product candidates and partnerships.

STAR-0215:Astria's lead program, STAR-0215 is currently in preclinical development for the treatment of HAE, a rare genetic disorder characterized by severe, recurrent, unpredictable, painful, and sometimes life-threatening swelling in the face, limbs, abdomen, and airway. Astria is developing STAR-0215 to be a long-acting monoclonal antibody inhibitor of plasma kallikrein, dosed once every 3 months or longer, with the goal of providing the most patient-friendly chronic treatment option for people living with HAE. The company expects to file an Investigational New Drug (IND) application for STAR-0215 in mid-2022 and plans to initiate a Phase 1 clinical trial with initial results anticipated by year end 2022.
