Tarsus is looking for inspired individuals who are interested in growing their career while helping us advance our mission to focus on unmet needs and apply proven science and new technology to revolutionize treatment for patients, starting with eye care.
Who is Tarsus? We are a late clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of therapeutic candidates to address diseases with high unmet need.
Tarsus is developing a pipeline of medicines and our lead product candidate, TP-03, is in a Phase 3 and second pivotal trial for the treatment of Demodex blepharitis (DB). TP-03 has the potential to be the first FDA-approved therapeutic and the standard of care for the treatment of Demodex blepharitis, a common lid margin disease that may affect up to 25 million people in the U.S. Significant commercial strategic planning is currently underway for TP-03. We are also developing TP-03 for the treatment of Meibomian Gland Disease, TP-04 for the treatment of Rosacea, and TP-05, an oral, non-vaccine therapeutic for the prevention of Lyme disease. TP-03 and TP-04 are expected to be in Phase 2a studies in 2022, and TP-05 is currently being studied in a Phase 1b clinical trial.
