Master Student Position in iPSC research

 Research: Mitochondria and cell fate reprogramming  Berlin
Huntington’s disease modeling with induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs)-derived neurons.

In this project, we aim to shed light on Huntington’s disease (HD)-associated mechanisms and possibly uncover novel therapeutic avenues by employing patient iPSC-derived neuronal cells.
HD-iPSCs have been already generated from different HD patients. The protocol for neuronal differentiation has also been established. We are now ready to investigate the disease pathogenesis in the patient neurons and establish high-content analysis (HCA) assays for the identification of innovative disease-modifying compounds.

The student should have experience with cell culture and basic techniques of molecular biology. She/he will learn to grow human pluripotent stem cells, will perform neuronal differentiation experiments, and will employ state-of-the-art technologies including RNA-sequencing, bioenergetic profiling (Seahorse technology), cell-based HCS (Cellomics ArrayScan), real-time PCR, immunostaining, and FACS. Enthusiasm and commitment are needed.

Economical support is possible.

Preferred start date is September 1st, 2017.
