Positon Title Post Doc Research Associate
Classification Type Post Doctoral
Primary Purpose of Position
To conduct research in bio-engineered Alzheimer's Disease (AD) recapitulated
brain organoid and further brain chip to study to elucidate novel mechanisms
underpinning human AD. The Postdoc, working independently but in close
cooperation and consultation with the Principal Investigator and other
Scientists, will perform routine and complex laboratory procedures throughout
training period and may develop, adapt, and implement new research techniques
and protocols. This position will design and perform experiments on
vascularized organoids derived from iPSC and further construction of brain
chip, including the iPSC-based organoid generation, vascularization and immune
cells interaction. Functional analysis of these brain organoids by 3D culture,
live cell imaging, ICC, confocal/light sheet imaging, ELISA, flow cytometry
RT-PCR, and western blot will also be required.
Primary Function of Organizational Unit
The FIT BEST lab develop vascularized brain organoids to recapitulate
Alzheimer's disease and study phenotypic expression of AD in terms of 1)
tissue chip utilization with engineered extracellular matrix, 2) blood brain
barrier dysfunction, 3) overactive inflammatory behavior induced by microglia
and circulating immune cells, 4) efficacy of treatments.
