Meeting Report: From Stem Cells to Human Development

Posted by on October 21st, 2020

Mustafa Güven gives a student’s perspective on Development’s recent virtual meeting: From Stem Cells to Human Development. Below the piece you’ll also find Mustafa’s Turkish translation of the report. For a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the meeting, go here. As a fourth-year medical student from Van, Turkey, I have witnessed birth and death on[…]

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[…]

Rita Levi-Montalcini Postdoctoral Fellowship in Regenerative Medicine

Posted by on June 30th, 2020

The Center of Regenerative Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications for the Rita Levi-Montalcini Postdoctoral Fellows in Regenerative Medicine program. These fellowships honor Rita Levi-Montalcini, whose Nobel-winning discovery of Nerve Growth Factor was among the first regenerative biology research to be conducted at WUSTL. The Center of Regenerative Medicine (CRM) seeks individuals[…]

Research Highlight #5: Leukemic stem cells from iPSCs

Posted by on June 9th, 2020

Today let’s delve into a curious case involving induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and leukemic stem cells (LSCs). Most blood cells derived from iPSCs are unable to engraft in immunodeficient mice. However, Wesely and colleagues observed an exceptionally high engraftment efficiency of cell lines derived from an individual affected by acute myeloid leukemia (AML). In[…]

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[…]

Postdoctoral researchers Solana lab

Posted by on March 2nd, 2020

Single-cell analysis of planarian stem cell differentiation and regeneration   The Solana lab seeks to recruit two postdocs (an experimental and a computational researcher) to develop projects on single-cell analysis of planarian stem cell differentiation. These positions are funded by the Leverhulme Trust. Single-cell sequencing methods are revolutionising the study of stem cells. The flatworm[…]

PhD Studenship in soma-germline communication and signaling regulation in the Drosophila testis (Medway School of Pharmacy, Universities of Kent and Greenwich)

Posted by on February 13th, 2020

A PhD position is available in the lab of Fani Papagiannouli (@Medway School of Pharmacy, Universities of Kent and Greenwich) to study soma-germline communication and the role of cortical polarity in signaling regulation during Drosophila spermatogenesis. The position is funded by a Medway School of Pharmacy Post Graduate Research Scholarship.  Stem cells are critical for[…]
