Description

Postdoctoral/Associate positions available on the molecular/cell biology of neurodegeneration and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Emphasis on roles of presenilin (PS)/γ-secretase and familial AD (FAD) mutants on neuroprotection, receptor processing/signaling, synapse function and cell survival. Effects of FAD mutants on neuroprotection, APP processing and Abeta. Experience with animal models, neuroprotection and gene expression in primary neuronal cultures are preferable. The candidate may also work on a project dedicated to finding specific inhibitors of the γ-secretase cleavage of APP without affecting cleavage of other substrates.
