. 1 Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship @ Cláudia's Almeida Lab

An international call for one postdoctoral research fellowship under the project entitled “Understanding the Impact of a Late-Onset Alzheimer's Disease Mutation in CD2AP on Synapses", at Neuronal trafficking in aging Lab, under the supervision and mentoring of Cláudia Guimas Almeida, at the Center of Chronic Diseases Research – CEDOC of the NOVA Medical School | Universidade NOVA de Lisboa of Lisbon, is open.

The Postdoctoral Researcher will develop a novel cellular model of late-onset Alzheimeir’s disease using human neurons differentiated from hIPSCs edited with CrisPR-CAS9 with the patient’s mutations, to evaluate how Alzheimer’s late-onset mutations disrupt neuronal function.
