Más información


We are seeking individuals with an interest in applying for the Caixa Postdoctoral Junior Leader Retaining fellowship in the area of Neurodegenerative disease, particularly ALS. The fellow would be hosted in the laboratory of the Neurometabolism, based at the Research Unit of the National Hospital of Paraplegics in Toledo, Spain.
(https://hnparaplejicos.sanidad.castillalamancha.es/en/profesionales/investigacion/basica).
The research in our group aims to understand the biological value of leptin as a therapeutic to ALS (https://hnparaplejicos.sanidad.castillalamancha.es/en/profesionales/investigacion/basica/neurometabolism). To achieve this goal, in the laboratory we employ highly relevant models of ALS pathology (hTDP-43A315T (Prnp-TARDBP*A315T)95Bal, TDP-43 bigenic mice (NEFH-hTDP-43ΔNLS) and TDP-43 knock-in mouse model of FTD (TDP-43Q331K/Q331K mice) in combine with multidisciplinary methods of biochemistry (biomarkers/plasma ELISA assays), molecular biology (mRNA-Seq and mRNA/protein arrays), flow cytometry techniques (FACS analysis and cell subset analysis) and behavioral memory (Y maze and new location recognition task (NLR)) and motor (Catwalk and rotarod test) test, utilizing different aspects from many areas such as Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, Pathophysiology and Endocrinology, and Neuroscience and Neural disorders.
We are interesting in hosting fellows with a broad range of backgrounds (including animal behaviour, neurophysiology, neuroimmunology, pathophysiology and endocrinology and neural disorders) than can contribute to the general research lines outlined above.
