UCLA HEALTH — Director of Human Pluriopotent Stem Cell and Genome Engineering Laboratory
The Institute for Precision Health (IPH) at UCLA seeks an innovative director to build and lead the Human Pluripotent Stem Cell and Genome Engineering Core Facility. The goal for this senior leader is to develop the core facility into a cutting-edge program supporting the mission of the institution. The primary focus will be on production of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from human subjects/patients and the use of site-specific endonucleases to directly modify the human genome in cultured cells with a focus on pluripotent stem cells. This center is anticipated to create a substantial future revenue stream and will attract new funding opportunities and advance scientific research. The director will drive strategic operations with vast scientific impact across DGSOM departments, for the Human Pluripotent Stem Cell Center to become a premier research center within its field.
* 10+ yrs. of human iPSC experience including their generation,understanding the mechanisms underlying reprogramming, and studying the iPSC state
