Company Overview
Fate Therapeutics is an innovative biotechnology company developing novel stem cell modulators (SCMs), biologic or small molecule compounds that guide cell fate, to treat patients with very few therapeutic options. Fate Therapeutics’ lead clinical candidate, ProHema, consists of pharmacologically-enhanced hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) designed to improve HSC support during the normal course of a stem cell transplant for the treatment of patients with hematologic malignancies. The Company is also advancing a robust pipeline of human recombinant proteins, each with novel mechanisms of action, for skeletal muscle, beta-islet cell, and post-ischemic tissue regeneration. Fate Therapeutics also applies its award-winning, proprietary, induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology to offer a highly efficient platform to recapitulate human physiology for commercial scale drug discovery and therapeutic use. With support from the U.S. Army, Fate Therapeutics is also investigating therapeutic intervention strategies to regenerate cells within the inner ear that are responsible for hearing. Fate Therapeutics is headquartered in San Diego, CA, with a subsidiary in Ottawa, Canada.

Fate’s Stem Cell Biology Group is currently seeking a talented auditory physiologist to lead a preclinical evaluation of compounds in rodent models of hearing loss. The successful candidate will have expertise in functional measurements of hearing, including ABR and EOAE, and experience with methods of intratympanic drug delivery. The candidate will also work with a team of scientists to collect cochlear samples for analytic and histologic analysis. This is a full time position that requires hands-on research and development, and reports to the Sr. Director, Stem Cell Biology.
