The Grutzendler lab at Yale has openings for outstanding, highly-motivated post-doctoral fellows to investigate cellular and molecular mechanisms of neuro-glial interactions in health and disease. Specific interests include neurodegenerative diseases, microvascular and myelin pathologies
The lab uses a variety of thechniques including high-resolution cellular imaging of single cells or small clusters of interacting cells in live mice combined with novel optical sensors of cellular physiology, optogenetics, chemogenetics, genome editing techniques delivered by viral vectors or in utero electroporation. We also synthesize novel small molecules with interesting properties for cell labeling and manipulation in vivo.
