Understanding of one or more areas of the following: cell biology, cell co-culture systems, cell-based assays, ex vivo tissue processing and histology.

Have the ability to execute various routine cell culture and in vitro cell-based assays that are associated with the pre-clinical candidate selection and validation of novel AAV-based gene therapy. You will be expected to be fully engaged in general laboratory activities, meetings and discussions.
