Ichor Therapeutics engages in research projects ranging from laboratory automation, to stem cell biology, animal husbandry, and beyond. Each intern will work with staff researchers to design and complete independent and group projects. Interns are expected to give weekly oral presentations of their research, create a poster at the conclusion of the internship, and if appropriate, publish the results of their experiments.
Ichor provides seed funding, infrastructure access, operational support, and mentoring to entrepreneurs in the life sciences in exchange for equity through its Grapeseed Bioaccelerator program. Our standard deal for almost all cases is $25k per 2% equity with a maximum investment of $100k. Founders work with the Ichor team to establish clear, actionable milestones/endpoints and are incubated for 9 months at our research laboratory while developing their companies.
