Top 16 Tools for Researchers in 2022

 

(17) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Post-doctoral researcher in gene therapy for Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimer’s disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease and is characterized by pathologically altered forms of the protein amyloid-beta in different parts of the brain. The treatment, which is aimed at increasing the levels of the signal substance acetyl choline, only relieves symptoms and is not aimed at the underlying disease process. There is therefore a great need to develop new therapies. One possibility may be to influence the formation of amyloid-beta with new gene therapeutic methods. The gene encoding this protein, APP, may in rare cases be mutated, leading to the formation of either more amyloid-beta, or an altered form of the protein. However, the vast majority of cases are sporadic, but even for these there is evidence that increased expression of APP is central in the disease process. In an ongoing project, the research team is developing a gene editing method to reduce the formation of amyloid-beta.

(20) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral position in Induced pluripotent stem cell disease modeling

The group is focused on functional genomics including the identification of mechanisms and pathophysiology associated with genetic disorders. Over the last decade the research group has identified a number of novel genes/gene variants and mechanisms associated with disease. A limiting factor in the studies of central nervous system (CNS) disorders has been models that recapitulate the human brain. To this end, the group has established induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology. We have reprogrammed somatic cells from patients with various genetic disorders of the CNS. The goals are to identify novel disease mechanisms at the cellular and molecular levels as well as to develop a 3D model for CNS (i.e. organoids). Analysis is performed on entire cell-populations as well as on single cells using e.g. functional assays, immunostainings, transcriptome- and methylome-profiling. Models are validated using CRISPR/Cas9 modifications of iPSC. The projects aim to reveal novel mechanisms and biomarkers associated with CNS disorders for improved diagnostics as a step towards drug development.

About Uppsala University, Sweden –Official Website

Uppsala University  is a research university in Uppsala, Sweden. Founded in 1477, it is the oldest university in Sweden and all of the Nordic countries still in operation. It has ranked among the world’s 100 best universities in several high-profile international rankings during recent years. The university uses “Gratiae veritas naturae” as its motto and embraces natural sciences.

The university rose to pronounced significance during the rise of Sweden as a great power at the end of the 16th century and was then given a relative financial stability with the large donation of King Gustavus Adolphus in the early 17th century. Uppsala also has an important historical place in Swedish national culture, identity and for the Swedish establishment: in historiography, literature, politics, and music. Many aspects of Swedish academic culture in general, such as the white student cap, originated in Uppsala. It shares some peculiarities, such as the student nation system, with Lund University and the University of Helsinki.

Uppsala belongs to the Coimbra Group of European universities and to the Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities. The university has nine faculties distributed over three “disciplinary domains”. It has about 44,000 registered students and 2,300 doctoral students. It has a teaching staff of roughly 1,800 (part-time and full-time) out of a total of 6,900 employees. Twenty-eight per cent of the 716 professors at the university are women. Of its turnover of SEK 6.6 billion (approx. USD 775 million) in 2016, 29% was spent on education at Bachelor’s and Master’s level, while 70% was spent on research and research programs.

Architecturally, Uppsala University has traditionally had a strong presence in Fjärdingen, the neighbourhood around the cathedral on the western side of the River Fyris. Despite some more contemporary building developments further away from the centre, Uppsala’s historic centre continues to be dominated by the presence of the university.
