Platelet BioGenesis, located in Cambridge MA, is a venture-backed biotech startup that was spun out of Harvard Medical School to produce donor-independent human platelets. They are a highly driven and ambitious young company that values openness, transparency, intellectual honesty, and collaboration, in their endeavor to transform platelet and derived therapeutics.
They make platelets. They have developed a scalable cGMP-compliant cell culture platform to make human pluripotent stem cell-derived platelets. They are now further scaling production for human clinical trials and leveraging their platform for cell-based drug delivery opportunities. They are currently recruiting for a motivated entry-level scientist to join their Bioreactor team. This person will work directly with the team scientists to advance the millifluidic bioreactor operation and scale up, as well as executing in vitro functional assays involving microfluidic devices. The candidate will plan and execute experiments utilizing human and mouse cells to optimize the production of platelets.
They are looking for a driven independent thinker with a professional work ethic who shares their long‐term vision for leveraging platelets as a drug delivery platform. Initiative and creative problem solving are priorities.
