Strength Through Diversity
Ground breaking science. Advancing medicine. Healing made personal.
Roles & Responsibilities:
- Our laboratory focuses on exploring and evaluating the complexity of molecular signaling crosstalk between cells in the kidney. Particularly, the research aims to examine molecular mechanisms in the glomerulus that result in kidney disease progression and diabetic nephropathy in order to identify novel glomerular lesion-specific therapeutic targets. The project will focus on exploring the key functional mechanisms of glomerular cell function in an integrative organotypic 3D cell culture system to validate the complex relationship between glomerular endothelial cells and podocytes. There will be opportunity to leverage the genetic and clinical data using cohorts from BioMe Biobank platform at the Charles Bronfman Institute for Personalized Medicine to determine whether genetic variations in our models are present in humans with kidney disease.
- Hold a Ph.D. or MD. Ph.D. Cell culture and mice handling. Experience with mitochondria bioenergetics is ideal.
