Alpha Stem Cell Clinic Coordinator (UCLA Requisition # 26013)

Listed on June 9, 2017

The UCLA-UCI Alpha Stem Cell Clinic (ASCC) is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between the University of California, Los Angeles, Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research and University of California, Irvine Sue & Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center. It is one of three clinics (alongside City of Hope and UC San Diego) funded through a five-year, $8M grant from the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), the state's stem cell agency. These three Alpha Clinics comprise the CIRM Alpha Stem Cell Clinic Network. ASCC accelerates stem cell clinical trials by providing comprehensive coordinated resources, education and services to eligible stem cell clinical trials. The ASCC supports regulatory, administrative, patient safety, and evaluation activities for individual trials, and develops best practices to benefit all stem cell trials.

The ASCC Coordinator will be primarily responsible for the coordination of administrative and data activities conducted within the ASCC, under the direction of the ASCC Program Manager. This position is an excellent opportunity for a motivated individual to assist in building a program that accelerates the translation of stem cell therapies into clinical practice.
