in disease and treatment modelling of M. Alzheimer using novel NMDA subtype specific modulators (cell culture, microscopy, pharmacology).
Our research is focused on ion channel associated diseases and the development of new pharmacological treatments by modulation of ion channels. The project will evaluate the outcome of subtype-specific inhibition of NMDA receptors in a disease model for Morbus Alzheimer. The experimental work will include the development of a stem cell based disease model as well as the evaluation of treatment success by using microscopy, immunohistochemistry and electrophysiology.
We expect from you:
- Completed MSc in biology, biochemistry or comperable disciplines
- Interest in cell imaging, immunohistochemistry and development of new cell-based assays
- Experience in basic cell culture, stem cell culture, molecular biology and/or microscopy are desirable
We offer you
- Enrolment in a Dr. rer. nat. Program
- Working in a strong interdisciplinary team
- Collaborations with different research groups from the WWU
