Within our research in the field of stem cells and how they can be used to develop new therapies for neurological disorders, we are looking for a fellow cell biological technician.
The main work of the cell biological technician will be to conduct studies aimed at culturing different populations of brain cells suitable for the study of brain disorders. Using pluripotent stem cell (PSC) technology, by bringing human somatic cells to a pluripotent state, and differentiation into neural cell types, we will set up new culture methods to generate functional nerve cells.
The EMMA Children's Hospital, in cooperation with the Centre for Neurogenomics and Cognitive Research, is conducting world-leading research on stem cells and how they can be used to develop new therapies for neurological diseases.
The Stem Cell lab focuses on understanding human neuron-glia interactions and glial contributions to neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders. Current projects involve generation and analysis of iPSCs from patients with the neurodevelopmental disorders Rett Syndrome, Tuberous Sclerosis Complex and Schizophrenia, and the leukodystrophies 4H leukodystrophy and adrenoleukodystrophy. Our goal is to identify and describe glial defects in neurodevelopmental disorders, and to perform proof-of-concept studies for glial-targeted therapy strategies using advanced stem cell technologies.
