The Division of Infectious Diseases in the Department of Medicine, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA is seeking applicants for a full-time Postdoctoral position for 2 years, supported by NIH funding. The incumbent will conduct research in novel therapeutic approaches to treat viral infections including HIV and Covid-19.
Preferred qualifications: Familiar with techniques such as multi-color flow cytometry, sterile technique for cell culture with BSL-2+ practices, ELISA, qRT-PCR, immunofluorescence, Western Blot and molecular biology techniques. Mouse experience is preferred but is not required. Experience in virology research is preferred but not required. The candidate should be comfortable working with BSL2+ biospecimens including biospecimens (cells, plasma, tissues) from patients or mice with COVID-19 and/or HIV. A Ph.D. is required.
Overview: The pandemic COVID-19 emphasized the need to develop novel therapeutic strategies to combat morbidity and mortality from viral infections. The Kelesidis laboratory focuses on novel antioxidants that target increased bioactive lipids and altered mitochondria to attenuate increased systemic inflammation, immune dysfunction and end organ disease in chronic HIV infection. Importantly these antioxidants were also recently shown to attenuate SARS-CoV-2 viral replication and associated inflammatory responses in lung cells. The lab uses in vitro cell culture models, ex vivo models of atherogenesis and gut explants to dissect mechanisms how the cross talk between bioactive lipids, immune, endothelial and epithelial cells drive atherogenesis and how novel therapeutic agents attenuate aberrant proinflammatory cellular pathways. The lab also uses a preclinical humanized mouse model of chronic treated HIV infection to study in vivo how novel therapies attenuate end organ disease. Recent areas of research include studies of pathogenesis of COVID-19 using preclinical in vitro and animal models of SARS-CoV-2 infection.
