ALV B AS

We are a veterinary pharmaceutical startup company designing immune-cell based cancer vaccines for pet dogs and cats. Our aim is to improve the quality of life and extend life expectancy of companion animals with cancer, and ultimately, translate these therapies to humans as our long term goal.


The student intern will be working with our R&D team developing the next generation of our cancer vaccines for treatment in companion animals. This will involve taking our current vaccine technology and using genetic modulation tools to improve on the efficiency and efficacy of the vaccine. The work will include designing and producing autologous vaccines from patient blood, using current genetic technology to modulate our vaccine and test it. They will also be exposed to our GMP and GCP practises in a real-world veterinary clinical trial and work directly with real-life patient blood and tissue samples. The student will be doing wet-lab research primarily, working within our R&D lab, our production lab and having direct contact with our research partners. We are a small and social team, working together across multiple projects, to which the student will be exposed throughout. The student will get to work in an international and interdisciplinary team, within an exciting and fast growing start up, and get to work world class veterinarians and top tier scientists.


We are looking for a student intern who is studying biomedicine, biotechnology, biology, chemistry or any other life science related subject.

DLOC SYSTEMS

DLOC Biosystems is an international start-up established in 2017 which developed the first ductal organ on chip device. This biochip is a scaffolding system where mammalian cells can be grown to form full 3D ductal tissues with the 3D spatial assembly, cell and matrix components that resemble those found in vivo. It currently has 11 employees and funds research in two universities to develop various organ-on-chips and optimize drug testing within the chips. The vision of the company is to grow into a contract research organization offering pre-clinical trial on chip as a service.


The aim of the internship is to use DLOC Biosystem’s proprietary microfluidics device to grow a pathophysiologically relevant complex tissue model which includes an immune component. This will be used for drug testing and to understand the mechanism of action of the drugs. About 90% of the drugs fail clinical trials and do not reach the market, with the majority of the drugs failing in late clinical trials which are expensive and jeopardize the health of the trial subjects. This is mostly because lab-grown tissues used in pre-clinical drug testing do not behave like tissues in the body. Cell behaviour is strongly influenced by the arrangement of cells within the tissue and the dynamic interactions of cells and the surrounding non-cellular components, known as 3D tissue structure and tissue microenvironment, respectively. Conventional cell culture solutions do not preserve the 3D structure nor the microenvironment. Novel 3D tissue culture solutions on bespoke microfluidic devices termed organ on a chip can provide and preserve both these things. DLOC Biosystems developed a microfluidics device which consists of an ultra-thin, porous 3D-ductal scaffold that allows for the development of ductal tissues. It also has a series of microfluidic channels, that allow the co-culturing of a supporting tissue around the duct. This is essential for the formation of the microenvironment. Within this internship, you will develop a protocol to grow lung cancer tissues to test different drugs. You will also add an immune component to the tissue model and test the therapeutic window of some drugs to prove that the organ on chip model developed is indeed able to mimic (patho)physiological conditions.


We are seeking a highly motivated student with good laboratory skills. Preferably from a bioscience or pharmacy background. Previous experience in cell culture is mandatory, experience in 3D cell culture is preferable. Knowledge of toxicity, cell viability and pharmacokinetic assays is a plus as is familiarity with microscopes especially confocal microscopes.

MEDLYTIC AS

Medlytic er en innsiktsplattform innen helse, som skal sikre at innsikten til de som vet hvor skoen trykker blir tatt med når beslutninger skal tas og nye verktøy skal utvikles. Det unike med Medlytic er at vi kombinerer det å ha det gøy med det å skape positiv endring i samfunnet. Medlytic er en såkalt impact startup og har som vårt samfunnsoppdrag å gjøre helse til det beste det kan være.


Medlytic har fått forskningsmidler fra RFF-Oslo for å utføre et forkningsprosjekt sammen med Sunnaas Sykehus. Sunnaas sykehus kontaktes i dag av næringsliv som ønsker innsikt om hvordan de kan utvikle bedre produkter og tjenester for pasienter og pårørende (en produktutviklingsprosess). Det er tidkrevende for Sunnaas å imøtekomme disse henvendelsene og arbeidet med å koble riktige brukerressurser til næringslivet er ressurskrevende for Sunnaas. På bakgrunn av dette ønsker de å finne en ny måte å gjøre denne produktutviklingsprosessen på sammen med Medlytic. Medlytic ønsker å innhente forskningsbasert kunnskap om hvordan disse prosessene gjøres i dag. Dokumentasjonen i forprosjektet skal bidra til å sette et nullpunkt for å måle om en ny tjeneste eller et nytt produkt fra Medlytic - som utvikles i et hovedprosjekt - bidrar til besparelser for Sunnaas sykehus (og andre sykehus på nasjonalt nivå) mtp. tid og ressurser, samt opplevd kvalitet av prosessen. Vi ønsker her å dokumentere produktutviklingsprosessen med forskningsbasert tilnærming. Denne kompetansen kan Medlytic anvende for å komme i posisjon til å utvikle en ny og forbedret prosess eller et nytt produkt for Sunnaas. Dette vil kunne gi verdiskapning for Sunnaas i form av besparelser på tid/ressurser, og verdiskapning for Medlytic i form av et validert produkt/en validert tjeneste som kan selges til andre foretak.


Vi ser etter studenter fra alle studieretninger som har en forskerspire i magen og har lyst til å delta i prosjektet. Her vil det bli mye kvalitative data å både hente inn og bearbeide.
