Areas of expertise


JBK Search is wildly excited about the impact CRISPR might have on cystic fibrosis to address the genetic mutations that cause the disease by editing a patient’s genetics thereby correcting the mutation itself.

Rare Disease

JBK Search’s unwavering passion for finding the best of the best stems from her daughter’s diagnosis of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) as well as her son’s diagnosis of Type 1 disease. We will not let up in the rare disease space until CF stands for “cure found”.


JBK Search’s 30 years of experience has allowed us to enjoy positive changes in the industry. Steve Jobs said, “The biggest innovation of the 21st century will be at the intersection of biology and technology.” JBK Search remains in the intersection with our clients.
