New Postdoctoral Positions: Systems Biology of Human Epilepsy and New Drug Development
We currently have 2 positions funded with ARRA funding to develop novel drug targets and biomarkers from human epileptic brain tissues and a new animal model of human epilepsy. Studies will utilize combinations of genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics of electrically-mapped human and rat brain tissues together with bioinformatic integration to both identify and validate these markers and targets. A central goal is the rapid translation of these studies back to patients. This work is part of a multi-investigator, systems biology approach to study human epilepsy with the development of a state-of-the art database for bioinformatic analysis. The individuals will have major organization roles in a large human research project on epilepsy that involves many investigators.
Postdoctoral Fellow in Neuromuscular and Axoglial Development
Students with interests in developmental and molecular neurobiology and/or how some of these early events teach us about diseases of the nervous system are cordially invited for a rotation within the laboratory. We take many different approaches to answer the questions we are interested in providing a well-rounded scientific education. Efforts are made so that each student in the lab will have his/her own, independent project.
