DanStem, University of Copenhagen
Our lab has two main goals 1) to understand how cell polarity and tissue architecture control cell fate specification and 2) to translate this knowledge into efficient and reliable strategies for regenerative medicine in diabetes. To explore our goals, we use a combination of mouse pancreatic epithelium and human pluripotent stem cells as model systems.
The aim of this project is to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms of tubulogenesis and its role in balancing cell proliferation and differentiation of multipotent progenitors in the developing pancreas. The postdoc will use the mouse model and confocal and multiphoton 3D microscopy of both live and stained specimens to investigate these questions, as part of a team of imaging, developmental biology and image analyses experts.
The position is for 2 years with a possible extension and planned to start as soon as possible or upon agreement.
DanStem addresses basic research questions in stem cell and developmental biology and has activities focused on the translation of promising basic research results into new strategies and targets for the development of new therapies for cancer and chronic diseases such as diabetes and liver failure (http://danstem.ku.dk)
