Job Description:

We are inviting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship position to help lead an NIH-funded project investigating delivery of gene therapies to the brain for the treatment of neurological disorders. Our laboratory uses the technology of focused ultrasound (FUS) to temporarily disrupt the blood-brain barrier for delivery of drugs and gene therapies to the brain. This preclinical project aims to deliver an AAV-packaged micro-RNA therapy targeting the gene implicated in Huntington's disease. We envision the methods developed here will be applicable to a range of gene therapy and neurological disorder combinations.
PRINCIPAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
--- Lead studies to optimize FUS-mediated delivery of AAV vectors in a mouse model.
--- Design and carry out FUS-BBB opening experiments in mice.
