Myelination Postdoctoral Positions

Department of Pharmacology and Physiology
Department of Neuroscience
University of Rochester Medical Center
Rochester, NY

Postdoctoral researcher positions funded by NIH and foundation grants are available to study myelination plasticity mechanisms underlying neuropsychiatric disorders. We have created many transgenic mouse models, including lines mimicking human de novo mutation, for these studies. Our mouse model exhibits myelination deficits even when the gene is selectively knocked out in neurons. This represents a novel direction of our lab. More information on our synaptic plasticity research can be found on our website:
