Graduate Studentship, Sterneckert Lab

At TU Dresden the Junior Research Group of Dr. Jared Sterneckert, “iPS Cells and Neurodegenerative Disease” at the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD), an Institute of the Center for Molecular and Cellular Bioengineering (CMCB), is calling for applications for a PhD scholarship. The Scholarship starts as soon as possible and is initially limited until Aug 30th 2020 with an optional extension. Dr. Sterneckert’s group uses patient specific induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells to generate models of neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Using a combination of gene editing, proteomics, and small molecules, we aim at understanding the mechanism(s) of pathogenesis and identifying novel treatments. The aim of this project is to use iPS cell-derived neurons in combination with patient biosamples to study amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, particularly the role of exosomes.
