Biomedical Engineering,
Biomedical Genetics,and the Center for Oral Biology

The University of Rochester Departments of Biomedical Engineering, Biomedical Genetics, and the Center for Oral Biology are seeking 2 outstanding postdoctoral associates for a highly collaborative project. These positions are available for one year starting as soon as possible and can be renewed for subsequent years based on research progress and the availability of funds.

Responsibilities: The principal focus of these positions will be to work on a collaborative team to develop functional human salivary gland tissue chips. For more than 550,000 patients annually diagnosed with head and neck cancers worldwide, severe loss of salivary gland function (xerostomia) is an unavoidable outcome of radiation therapy. Efforts to study radiosensitivity to discover effective radioprotective and regenerative strategies have been hampered by the inability to culture salivary gland mimetics in vitro, due to loss of secretory acinar cell phenotype. The work will utilize our microbubble (MB) array technology as a highthroughput, modular platform for the tissue chips. The MB platform will be used to develop tissue chips capable of long-term secretory function, exploring a variety of variables including cell seeding density, phenotype, and microenvironmental cues with the end goal of screening FDA-approved drugs to identify effective radioprotective agents and testing them in vivo. The project is supported by NIH 1UH3DE027695 (Benoit, DeLouise, Ovitt mPI).
