The Arrojo e Drigo lab focuses in understanding the mechanisms regulating post-mitotic cell homeostasis and longevity. Many post-mitotic cells can be as old as the organism, which makes them remarkably long-lived. We study long-lived cells in different organs and explore their developmental trajectory, structure-function and aging patterns. Our lab uses a combination of single cell sequencing and high-resolution light, electron and isotope microscopy platforms to overlay cell structure-function with molecular identity, age and metabolism.
The lab is based in the Molecular Physiology and Biophysics (MPB) Department at Vanderbilt University. MPB is a highly collaborative, supportive and interactive department with direct access to cutting edge single cell sequencing and microscopy resources.
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to study the physiology of long-lived cells in the pancreas in Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes models. Research involves experiments with genetically-modified mouse models and using multi-platform microscopy and single cell sequencing pipelines to study cell structure-function.
Successful applicants should be enthusiastic and driven to carry out cutting edge research in a supportive and collaborative environment. Proven ability to perform basic research in computational sciences and/or physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology or cell biology is required.
