Post-doctoral Fellowship Position, S. aureus Pathogenesis in SkinPosted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2018-Feb-12
Our research has used innovative in vivo preclinical models, including pioneering advanced techniques of in vivo whole animal optical (bioluminescence and fluorescence) imaging to track bacterial clearance and host immune responses noninvasively and longitudinally over time, human skin organotypic culture models and novel humanized mouse models possessing both human skin and immune cells. Our laboratory has been funded with NIH grant support continuously for more than 15 years (R01's, R56's, R21, R03 and K08 grants). In addition, we have extensive industry and foundation support with 7 foundation grants and 16 investigator-initiated and sponsored research grants from industry in the past 5 years alone.
