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[…]

Transcriptional Regulation of Stem Cell Fate-postdoctoral position Philpott lab

Posted by on August 26th, 2020

A postdoctoral Research Associate position is currently available for an individual to work in the laboratory of Prof. Anna Philpott within the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute (https://www.stemcells.cam.ac.uk/research/pis/philpott). The Philpott lab has broad interests in understanding the fundamental mechanisms that determine cell fate choice and differentiation during embryonic development and in cancers, as well as how[…]

Research Highlight #4: Macrophages in human development

Posted by on June 1st, 2020

Today we return our interest to human development, focusing on a special blood cell: the macrophage. Produced in multiple, stem cell-independent waves, macrophages colonize the developing foetus early on, forming several tissue-resident populations. This includes the microglia which are essential for brain and spinal cord development. In this paper, the authors looked into macrophage development[…]
