Durham, NC – BIOMILQ – Engineering Student Associate

BIOMILQ is developing technology to make breastmilk outside the body, produced from mammary cells. We’re making the future of feeding fearless, and 100% human by offering families a new option for supplemental feeding — one that’s as close to breastmilk as possible and cultivated under safe conditions using our first-of-its-kind technology.

Our provisional patent-pending process leverages the unique biological properties of milk-producing mammary epithelial cells combined with bioreactor technology developed to collect secreted cellular products. The high-density, 3-dimensional system provides similar structural features as the mammary gland, creating the appropriate environment for the cells to reproduce their biological function of milk production, outside of the body. Our process enables us to produce milk that requires no downstream separation, concentration, or intensive thermal processing so we can retain all 2500+ molecules of milk in the perfect constellation for bioavailability and digestibility in infants.

This role requires some in-person work.

Application deadline: April 25, 2021.
