GMP Production Officer (60-100%) at LifeMatrix

LifeMatrix is part of the Wyss Zurich since 2015. LifeMatrix is active in the fast-growing field of medical
biomimetics and has developed a unique tissue engineering technology to grow human replacement
tissues in the laboratory as next-generation implants for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. When
implanted, the patients own cells will vitalize and transform the LifeMatrix tissue into living heart valves
and blood vessels which can grow and regenerate with the patient. The LifeMatrix technology has the
potential to overcome the significant limitations of existing implants and revolutionize the medical device
industry. For further information visit:
