Head of Regenerative Medicine
Cadaveric allogeneic islet transplantation with concomitant chronic immunosuppression to prevent graft rejection in patients with type I diabetes (TID) has historically resulted in sustained insulin independence or reduced insulin requirements in most patients. The limited supply of human islet donors along with the challenges associated with chronic immunosuppression have restricted widespread access to islet replacement. The emergence of pluripotent stem cells as a renewable and expandable cell source for treating insulin-requiring diabetes with their capacity to differentiate into insulin-producing cells as well as CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing approaches have paved the way for addressing the major hurdles in cell therapy for treatment of TID. In this seminar, I will share our approach and progress in using gene edited cell-based therapy for treatment for TID.

Photia Incorporated is developing methods for industrial-scale manufacturing of materials with complex 3D nanostructure. These materials have many applications for sustainable energy technologies. Our technology will ultimately increase the speed by which such materials can be made by several orders of magnitude compared to conventional photolithography, thereby lowering their cost and enabling their widespread use.
We are looking to fill a paid internship position for candidates interested in learning about research and development in industry to help with one of our projects. Most of the work will be done in the Molecular Foundry at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (just up the hill near UC Berkeley campus; regular shuttle available).
For this job, you will:
• conduct process development for holographic lithography and other nanopatterning techniques;
• characterize the resulting composites (e.g. with scanning electron microscopy, optical spectroscopy).
The internship begins Oct or Nov 2022 and runs through spring 2022 (dates flexible; possibility for extension based on funding). Pay is $25/hr. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
We are looking for candidates who:
• have some experience working safely in an engineering, physical science, or biology laboratory (the exact kind of lab is immaterial, as we will provide training);
• pay attention to details and can keep good records;
• are able to work 10-20 hr/wk (times are flexible);
• are interested in developing scalable nanomanufacturing techniques;
• would like to apply their knowledge to make materials with impacts on energy technologies;
• are adaptable and committed to continual learning.
A BS in materials science, electrical engineering, applied physics, optical engineering, or similar field is helpful but not required. Current university students are encouraged to apply. Please send a short cover letter via e-mail and attach a current resume.
