Jobs Created At New Synexa IHQ

Synexa Life Sciences have announced the opening of a new International Head Office in Dublin, with the creation of a number of new jobs.

The centre will house Synexa's global business development activities and a new bioinformatics laboratory. Their biomarker analysis will help drug researchers in determining and predicting a new drug's safety and efficacy profile, identify likely patient responders and non-responders, and understand better how the drug works.

Up to 30 new highly-skilled jobs are expected to be created at the new facility over the next five years.

Tánaiste and Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Frances Fitzgerald TD, proclaimed that the company's arrival was "a great win for Ireland". She added that their arrival would bring "high quality jobs involving cutting-edge science and research for the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry" and would "help drive the development of new products by the industry."

CEO Paul O'Riordan, who co-founded Synexa fourteen years ago in Cape Town with two local scientists, said that locating their international headquarters in Ireland was a "very straightforward" decision.

O'Riordan said, "Ireland has a well-deserved reputation as one of the world's most open and business-friendly environments... Dublin's rapidly growing ecosystem of high-tech companies, innovative research institutions and skilled young people makes it a very attractive place to build a business like ours."
