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[…]

Down from the crest to clear the dead

Posted by on September 30th, 2019

Yunlu Zhu & Sarah Kucenas   Introduction Cells are the building blocks of life. However, in multi-cellular organisms, millions of cells are subject to death due to injury, infection and ordinary cell turnover (Galluzzi et al., 2018). For example, epithelial cells in the small intestine rapidly renew every 2 to 6 days in most mammals,[…]

The people behind the papers – Anjali Rao & Carole LaBonne

Posted by on August 9th, 2018

The neural crest is a progenitor population with the capacity to contribute to all vertebrate germ layers. The transcription factor and signalling pathway activity underlying this remarkable pluripotency have been well studied, but the role of the epigenetic state is less well understood. A new paper in Development examines the role of histone acetylation in regulating[…]

Postdoctoral Positions — Neural crest stem cells, pigment pattern, adult form

Posted by on June 1st, 2018

Postdoctoral positions are available in the Parichy lab at University of Virginia. The lab studies development using zebrafish and related species. Current emphases include hormonal control over post-embryonic neural crest stem cells, plasticity in cell state, evolution of novel cell types, and mechanisms of pattern formation and cell–cell communication within zebrafish and across Danio species.[…]

Biotagging: Behind the scenes (and beyond)

Posted by on May 16th, 2017

“It finally got accepted!”, fol­­lowed by “It’s finally out!” about a month later. I am certain this ‘finally’ feeling about their paper is very familiar to those well-acquainted with the peer review process, and it was no different for our recently published Resource article. The ‘biotagging paper’, as we call it within the Sauka-Spengler lab,[…]
