The Czechowicz Laboratory within the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Stem Cell Transplantation and Regenerative Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine has an opening for a creative, collaborative and motivated Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator to perform administrative support duties related to the collection of clinical data and/or the coordination of clinical studies. Work under supervision of the principal investigator and/or study coordinator/supervisor. The Czechowicz lab has a number of projects and research studies ranging from translational to clinical research in hematopoiesis, bone marrow transplantation (BMT), bone marrow failure (BMF), and Fanconi Anemia (FA).

Our laboratory has previously conducted pioneering work demonstrating that hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) depletion is a critical component to donor HSC engraftment. We have developed multiple pre-clinical agents that enable safe and targeted HSC conditioning, several of which are turning into promising clinical monoclonal antibody therapies. We are now applying these to the treatment of candidate diseases of great need. We are primarily focused on blood and immune diseases, but this work could also potentially be expanded to other organ systems as well.

The Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator selected to join the laboratory will work closely under supervision of the principal investigator, research team, and clinical team on Fanconi Anemia clinical trials, Bone Marrow Failure Clinic Program, and the related pre-clinical studies including collection of clinical data to further understand and improve bone marrow transplantation.
