Exosomes from Adipose-derived Stem Cells Modulate Age-dependent Progression of Tauopathies: NIH funded postdoctoral positions are available immediately to highly motivated individuals to participate in ongoing studies on Alzheimer's disease (AD). Our laboratory is focusing on the idea that changes in immune function that occur with aging is an important factor to examine when following the progression of Tauopathies associated with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. Our lab focuses on examining the complex proteomic and functional phenotype of microglia and how this is affected by aging using mouse models of tauopathies. Furthermore, we have discovered that exosomes derived from adipose derived stem cells are potent modulators of inflammation and have potential to serve as therapeutic interventions in age-related tauopathies.
Within the predetermined research scope and methodology, conduct research experiments in the field of Alzheimer’s disease to include:
Collect and analyze data, including periodical/literature search and utilizing specialized skills in related field to analyze the collected data.
Participate/assist in manuscript writing for publication in scientific journals and/or presentations. May also assist in grant writing.
Lab maintenance, including equipment maintenance, and ordering of supplies as needed.
Other duties as assigned, which may include attending Scientific Conferences and Meetings.
The candidate should have a keen interest in understanding complex mechanisms underlying memory formation and storage in mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to work in a dynamic environment and train with experienced molecular, cellular, and behavior neuroscientists investigating various aspects of the nervous system function and dysfunction.
These positions are available for up to 2-3 years.
