The Cellular Therapy Lab Quality Assurance Specialist will, with the guidance of program leadership, perform quality assurance activities for the UCSF Cellular Therapy Development Laboratory and the UCSF Human Islet and Cellular Transplantation Facility (HICTF) and GMP Facility. These laboratories support a wide range of experimental cellular therapy development and manufacturing activities focusing on regulatory T cells, anti-cancer T cell therapy, CRISPR-Cas9-modified T cell therapies, and human stem cell-based therapies. The focus of the group is on first-in-human phase 1 clinical trials. We do not perform standard of care cellular therapy activities, such as hematopoetic stem cell transplants, which are handled by other UCSF facilities.
The position involves work with academic groups at all stages of the cellular therapy development and manufacturing process and with partners and clients in the biopharmaceutical industry who have collaborations or manufacturing activities ongoing with our group. Work is completed in close collaboration with the regulatory affairs, manufacturing, operations, and QC groups.
