PhD position in Inner Ear Development and Regeneration, UPF-PRBB

Posted by on August 17th, 2011

FGF and Retinoic Acid Signaling during development and regeneration The inner ear is a highly complex sensory organ that allows us to communicate with the external world. Sensory information is captured by specialized sensory cells that emerge during development in a precise temporal and spatial order. This PhD project will address the question on how[…]
