Cellular and Molecular ImmunologyPosted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2019-Sep-30
This NIH funded laboratory at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) investigates the molecular and cellular determinants of alloantigen specific tolerance using murine models of cardiac and pancreatic islet transplantation. Specific investigations involve the determination of mechanisms responsible for remodeling of secondary lymphoid organ structure, and how those mechanisms drive T cell migration, differentiation, and fate determination. The molecular focus of the investigations is directed to chemokines, chemokine receptors, cytokines, sphingosine receptors, lymphotoxin, and stromal fibers. Specific cellular elements include regulatory suppressive T cells, effector T cells, vascular and lymphatic endothelial cells, stromal cells, and dendritic cell subsets. Techniques include heavy reliance on in vivo animal models, migration and trafficking assays, real time imaging and advanced microscopy, multicolor flow and sorting, and a variety of molecular techniques for proteins and nucleic acids.
