Life at Intergalactic

“I joined Intergalactic to make an impact. I feel that I am closer to the patients and that I can contribute with my science to improve their lives. My motivation is fed by two sources at Intergalactic: One is the work itself, and the other one is the people. The vibe is so positive that it pushes me to give the best of myself!”

Rosario “Chari” Fernandez-Godino, Ph.D.
Head of Retina Lab

“I came to work for Intergalactic because the technology has the potential to change the field of gene therapy, and gene therapy is going to be the future of healthcare and medicine. The learning curve never stops—I constantly find myself learning and growing, and that is an amazing place to be.”

Keerthana Subramanian

“One of the things I enjoy most about being a part of Intergalactic is the variety of projects. Each one has its own challenges, it is never boring, and I get to work with colleagues of different backgrounds. The complexity of turning the gene electrotransfer concept into a successful therapy requires each individual to bring something unique.”

Jaka Cemazar, Ph.D.

Meet the Photographer

Wei Zhang, Ph.D., is a retina biologist at Intergalactic Therapeutics. He is also a very talented amateur photographer who snapped many of the portraits and other images you see on this website.

He says: “I like to observe beautiful things and sights in life, and photography is just the right tool to record them. My photography is diverse, and my subject matter includes landscape, culture, portraits, and night scenes. My photographs have been viewed over 10 million times online.

“Photography has trained me to observe details and express the beauty of works. As a researcher, I find this ability is very helpful for in depth analysis of the results of experiments and presentation of them in a logical order.”
