Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine
If you are interested in working with us, please send a message. Currently, we are recruiting new colleagues for the following three projects:
In one project, you will be studying translational readthrough. Our lab has a dual interest in readthrough. On one end, you will analyse endogenous translational readthrough, see our Plos Genetics review for an introduction. On the other hand, we are using bioinformatics (together with Genevention) to improve readthrough therapies of rare diseases. Programming skills are welcome but not madatory for this project as this is a wet lab molecular biology / Molecular Medicine project. Please contact us for more details.
In one project, we offer the opportunity to work in the field of Molecular Cardiology. You will be studying the function of peroxisomes in the heart, using mouse and human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPS) cardiomyocytes. Please contact us for more details.
In another project, you will be studying the function of Dysferlin in a biochemical setting. This project involves protein purification and in vitro systems, so it is great for someone with a strong interest in biochemistry. For our (more physiological) work on Dysferlin, see Julia's papers on Dysferlin in the skeletal muscle and in the heart, and the great Ferlin review by Anna Bulankina. Please contact us for more details.
