I perform process development to design, establish, and transfer cell therapy processes to support early phase clinical trials.

“The course and laboratory work at Berkeley helped me not only to grasp the principles but also allowed me to apply those in real life applications. I believe that the culture in Berkeley to encourage analytical thinking was crucial to my success both as student and in the industry.”

I’ve been responsible for our company’s regulatory submissions in the US, Mexico, Canada, and the EU, as well as providing clinical and technical support for the physician investigators in our pivotal trial.

“I gained my foundation in clinical research and regulatory affairs through the MTM program. This allowed me to jump in quickly when our company developed the need for clinical and regulatory support.”

It’s easy to get involved with Berkeley BioE

    Nancy Allbritton, Professor of Bioengineering & Dean of Engineering, Stanford University

    Organ-on-chips are miniaturized devices that arrange living cells to simulate functional subunits of tissues and organs. These microdevices provide exquisite control of tissue microenvironment for the investigation of organ-level physiology and disease. A 3D polarized epithelium using primary human or mouse gastrointestinal stem cells was developed to fully recapitulate gastrointestinal...
