The intern will research potential companies for acquisition, gather competitive intelligence for portfolio companies, and give presentations to executives concerning strategic opportunities. Additionally, they will spend time with start-up companies, developing and implementing improvement strategies. The intern will also sit with the analysts and review companies seeking investments.

Company/Organization

Lishtot is a startup that developed a patented technology detecting electric fields associated with water and contaminants. Its prototype is designed to fit on your keychain and allow you to test tap water, bottled water, and natural water for contaminants such as E. coli and lead in a matter of seconds and at no cost for the test. The device can even tell if someone has had a sip from your cup or not. This will empower water drinkers of all types, whether in India or in suburbia to know if their water is clean. The device bluetooths to the Lishtot app which helps us build a global water map to help track water quality around the world.

Internship

This lab focuses on developing and using novel structural, genetic, cell biology and genomics approaches and state of the are equipment to uncover the structure of lamins and the pathways that they regulate. The intern will participate in all phases of research including planning, preparation, calibration, application, evaluation, data analysis, and maintenance. The intern will design and conduct experiments (with mentorship guidance) within a defined project, collect and interpret data and make novel observations.

Company/Organization

This research group at the Hebrew University Departnebt of Genetics studies nuclear lamina, which is present underneath the inner nuclear membrane (INM). It is composed of the lamin intermediate filaments and lamin-associated proteins. The nuclear lamina is involved in most fundamental nuclear activities and mutations in the genes encoding nuclear lamina proteins lead to numerous heritable diseases. They are using a combination of structural, genetic and cell and molecular biology methods to determine the structure of lamins, their roles in mechano transduction, nuclear organization and metabolism.
