Master’s Position Available to Study the Role of the Unfolded Protein Response (UPR) during Traumatic Brain Injury – Lindsey/Logue Labs, University of Manitoba

This project uniquely investigates the role of the unfolded protein response (UPR) in regulating the regenerative ability of neural stem cells following traumatic brain injury (TBI) using the zebrafish model. The objective of the proposed study is to identify the temporal dynamics of UPR signaling during the repair process, characterize the cell types in which […]

Postdoctoral or Graduate Student Position: Corticothalamic synaptic physiology in a Rett Syndrome mouse model

Corticothalamic synaptic physiology in a Rett Syndrome mouse model 2 year funded Postdoctoral position, University of Victoria, BC Canada – available immediately Rett syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder which manifests postnatally due to loss of function of an X-linked transcription factor MECP2, which controls various aspects of neuronal and synapse maturation. Studies will be performed […]
