Postdoctoral position available in the Gerecht lab
Postdoctoral opening in biomimetic microfluidic platforms for hypertension
Immediate opening for a postdoctoral fellow to work on the development and characterization of biomimetic tissue constructs for investigating vascular diseases. Expertise is required in one or all of the following: photo and soft-lithography, microfluidics, cell culture, and tissue engineering. Postdoctoral fellows will have a unique opportunity to do interdisciplinary research at the interface of engineering (Prof. Gracias’s lab) and medicine (Prof. Lewis Romer), and publish their results in high impact journals. We are seeking highly motivated and well published researchers with good oral and written communication skills. Please email resumes to Prof. David Gracias (email@example.com).
Postdoctoral Positions Available in Wirtz Lab
Multiple postdoctoral positions are available to study the role of the synergistic mechanism of Interleukin 6 and 8 in cell density-dependent mechanisms that govern metastasis in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD.
Proliferation and migration are two key drivers of metastasis that can be mechanistically coupled in the tumor microenvironment through local tumor cell density via the synergistic signaling of Interleukin 6 and 8. Inhibition of this mechanism in pre-clinical mouse models has demonstrated a decrease in metastatic burden to the lungs, liver, and lymph nodes. We are now further delineating this signaling mechanism to develop better therapeutics against cancer metastasis.
