We are seeking highly-motivated postdoctoral researchers to join Dr. Yu Zhang’s lab at Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine.
The focus of the Zhang lab is to identify mechanisms that promote antibody diversification and suppress associated oncogenic lesions in B lymphocytes. Antibody diversification generates the numerous antibodies in human body and plays a pivotal role in protecting us from infectious diseases and cancer. Abnormal antibody diversification underlies diseases ranging from immunodeficiency to autoimmunity and contributes to oncogenic translocations in various leukemias and lymphomas. The Zhang lab is particularly interested in how chromatin status and genome architecture collaboratively contribute to the protective and pathogenic effect of antibody diversification. The projects will employ cell line and mouse models with a variety of state of art approaches, including CRIPSR/Cas9 mediated genome manipulation and various next generation sequencing techniques.
Funded by NIH, the postdoc fellows will lead the projects and have the opportunity to closely collaborate with experts in immunology, molecular biology and bioinformatics.
