Job Description

Emulate creates living products for understanding how diseases, medicines, chemicals, and foods affect human health. Our Human Emulation System sets a new standard for recreating true-to-life human biology and is being used to advance product innovation, design, and safety across a range of applications – including drug development, agriculture, cosmetics, chemical-based consumer products, and personalized health.

Our founding team pioneered the original Organs-on-Chips technology during their time working within the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University. We founded Emulate in July 2014 with a Series A investment led by the venture capital firm NanoDimension, alongside investment from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and private investor Hansjörg Wyss. Emulate holds the worldwide exclusive license from Harvard University to a robust and broad intellectual property portfolio for the Organs-on-Chips technology and related systems.
