Dr. Yanhong Shi's lab is looking for highly motivated and productive postdoctoral fellows for stem cell research projects within the Department of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine (Shi laboratory) at Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope located in the county of Los Angeles, California.
The Shi laboratory has been well known for stem cell research, including stem cell-based disease modeling and cell therapy development. This laboratory is one of the pioneers in establishing disease models and cell therapies using the human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) platform and has published extensively in this area.
The Shi laboratory has established protocols for differentiating human iPSCs into a variety of cell types, including brain cells, blood cells, and organoids, and has developed cellular models and cell therapeutic candidates for diseases including Alzheimer's disease, Canavan disease, and glioblastoma. The Shi laboratory has well-established experimental platform and sufficient funding for candidates who are interested in doing first-class science. For more information about Dr. Yanhong Shi's lab, please visit here.As a successful candidate, you will:
- Lead a project on human iPSC-based disease modeling and therapeutic development for neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease.
- Write progress reports and high-quality manuscripts for publication.
