PhD-student Position in Thalamus Development / Tissue Engineering in Zebrafish

Posted by on September 21st, 2011

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student to study development and regeneration of the thalamus in zebrafish. Stroke is a prevalent and devastating disorder, and no treatment is currently available to restore lost neuronal function after stroke. In 10% of all stroke patients, a remote damage of the thalamus has been documented. We[…]
