Company Description

This spinout from UC Santa Cruz is developing innovative technology for improving the healing of serious wounds. Using a combination of approaches involving bioelectronic devices, machine learning, and regenerative medicine, the team is able to achieve precise control over the physiological processes involved in wound healing, giving doctors greater insights into their patients’ progress, enabling the identification of the right treatment path at the right time.

Short Job Description

Doctors who treat and care for patients with serious wounds lack the tools to monitor the healing process regularly and precisely and thus cannot dispatch the right therapeutics at the right time to enable effective healing. The Rolandi Lab is addressing this by developing a flexible bioelectronic bandage to control the electrochemical environment of the wound and promote healing while monitoring the physiological processes in the wound using optical sensors. Giving the doctors a user-friendly interface, this device enables a new paradigm for remote sensing of wound status and allows doctors to provide the right treatment protocols, ensuring patient outcomes are maximized and healing occurs as rapidly and effectively as possible.

The Rolandi lab is seeking a motivated entrepreneur to advise on the commercialization this wound healing solution. A candidate for this position must have experience in the portable imaging, diagnostic, or chronic wound healing space as well as experience in the manufacturing and design of portable wound healing devices. This role will work directly with the lead Principal Investigator to provide advice and analysis to help define and validate the commercial opportunity, understand the competition, create a development plan, develop and execute an intellectual property plan, and develop a go-to-market plan.

  • Qualifications for this role include:
  • Over 10 years in medical device space or equivalent experience
  • Experience in building and leading interdisciplinary teams. Preference for teams with a combination of engineering, software, biology, and data sciences.
  • Experience in raising funds (e.g. investors, partnerships) for novel technologies
  • Exceptional communication skills
  • Experience in end-to-end development of medical devices ranging from ideation, fund raising, execution, establishing regulatory and reimbursement paths, and comprehensive intellectual property strategy.
  • Experience in working with external providers (IP law firms, regulatory consultants, etc)

This is a part-time, remote-friendly position with the possibility of on-site work pending the safety of in-person meetings and the possibility to grow into a leadership position in this new company.
