- Experimental Validation of Key Molecular Drivers for Alzheimer's Disease.
We have recently used integrative network analysis and identified a large number of driver genes and proteins as key contributory factors to Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Our ongoing in vitro investigations are experimentally characterizing the relevance of these key drivers to AD-related pathogenic molecular and cellular phenotypes. We are seeking a post-doctoral fellow to help develop and implement in vivo models to systematically validate contributions of key drivers to AD onset and/or progression. The candidate will be responsible for genetically perturbing key driver gene expression or function in AD mouse models and test for effects on AD phenotypes. We anticipate that In vivo genetic perturbation of driver genes will be conducted using shRNA/siRNA/CRISPR knock-in or knockout technologies. Effects on AD phenotypes will be assessed using behavioral and cognitive studies.
- PhD in neuroscience, biology.
