Postdoc – USC Center for Craniofacial Molecular Biology

Posted by on November 7th, 2020

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in Yang Chai‘s laboratory at the Center for Craniofacial Molecular Biology, University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California. We are interested in the regulation of developmental patterning, organogenesis, and mesenchymal stem cells. Our studies will seek to define molecular mechanisms governing both normal and abnormal craniofacial development, providing[…]

Postdoc in neural stem cell metabolism – Francis Crick Institute, London

Posted by on October 19th, 2020

  A four year postdoctoral position in the lab of Alex Gould is now available. Previous work in the laboratory, using Drosophila, has shown that the neural stem cell niche plays a critical role in sparing the developing CNS from stresses such as nutrient restriction and hypoxia (PMID: 26451484, PMID: 21816278). We are now looking[…]

Introducing ACME: the species-versatile fixation and dissociation solution for single cell analysis

Posted by on July 1st, 2020

This post highlights the approach and findings of a new research article available in preprint on BioRxiv. This feature was written by members of the Solana lab, authors of that paper. Single cell techniques are revolutionising biology, but at the moment they are largely limited to traditional model organisms and require access to specialised equipment[…]

Conversations with my parents (about adult chondrogenesis and spontaneous cartilage repair in the skate, Leucoraja erinacea)

Posted by on June 23rd, 2020

One night, during the summer of 2012, I found myself sitting in a cottage in Woods Hole, trying to explain to my parents why I’d spent much of my professional life studying the little skate (Figure 1). I was a postdoctoral fellow at Dalhousie University at the time, and working almost exclusively with skate as[…]

The story of my heart, from the bottom of my heart (says the Zebrafish)

Posted by on June 23rd, 2020

I started off as quite little—just one cell, in fact. No heart, no brain, no blood flowed in me and yet, somehow I found the motivation in me to divide. One me made two and two mes made four, till many tiny mes made me a full-fledged embryo with a heart full of hope. As[…]

Research Highlight #1: Inhibition of cell cycle regulators alters the EHT

Posted by on May 12th, 2020

Hello everyone! My name is Alessandro, I am a postdoc in love with science, stem cells and blood! I am also a big fan of the Node, The Company of Biologists generously granted me a travel grant back in 2016, that allowed me to discover the beautiful Cambridge (the old one). As the lockdown starts[…]

Irin ajo mi si Nigeria | My journey to Nigeria

Posted by on April 17th, 2020

My first impression of Nigeria remained loyal to what I would experience the following two weeks: very warm weather, very colourful attires, very warm and joyful hearts. Also, it is loud, there is always sound…
