Our Partners

The SJSU SCILL consortium with the collaborative effort of Stanford University, UC Santa Cruz, Amgen, Tenaya, Dorian Therapeutics, Neurona, Notable Labs, etc. prepare and train graduate-level students in stem cell research.

The Host Institutions offer a diverse array of research interests in Regenerative Medicine with the state-of-the-art-technology. Each institution works closely with the interns to provide them with experience and laboratory skills that will allow them to take advantage of career opportunities in stem cell research.

Internship Coordinators

IHI Coordinators provide onsite coordination and supervision for students during their year-long research internship. Coordinators make sure that interns are added to assurance forms and protocols and overall supervise the intern performance and adaptability to the internship lab. Coordinators keep close communication with SJSU mentors to optimize interns performance and satisfaction of both interns and internship lab mentors and PI’s.

Each institution has unique internship opportunities and requirements. It is the IHI Internship Coordinator’s responsibility to assure knowledge and experience in a variety of techniques and to manage the unique opportunities and requirements during the year-long internship.
