Kim lab introduction
The broad interest of Kim lab is to understand the pathogenic mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease and other related neurodegenerative diseases and to identify novel therapetuic targets. Current research efforts aim to understand the roles of Apolipoprotein (ApoE) and ApoE-regulating proteins, such as ABCA1 and LDLR, in Alzheimer’s disease. We are also interested in studying the role of microRNAs and lncRNAs in Alzheimer’s disease, other neurodegenerative diseases, brain aging, obesity, and cardiovascular diseases.

Our lab in the Department of Genetics & Complex Diseases and Immunology & Infectious Diseases at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health is looking for an outstanding postdoctoral fellow. Emerging studies indicate that metabolic reprogramming critically controls macrophage activation, and a variety of projects are available in the lab addressing various aspects of such control, including the metabolic basis of Nlrp3 inflammasome activation; metabolic crosstalk between tumor associated macrophages and tumor cells; and metabolic influences on chromatin-mediated control of macrophage activation and memory.

Candidates should be skilled in cell biology, molecular biology, and basic mouse work. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in studying macrophage biology, particularly metabolism, signaling, and/or gene regulation, as demonstrated in their publication record. Candidates must have a Ph.D. or Ph.D./M.D. degree.

Please submit application, including a cover letter, CV and names and contact information of at least 3 references to:

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center Postdoctoral Position

The Dasgupta lab is looking for a highly motivated, self-driven and ambitious postdoctoral researcher to start around September, 2016 in the Division of Oncology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The ideal candidate could be finishing up graduate studies or completed graduate studies with no more than one year of post-PhD research experience. Experience in molecular biology including in-depth understanding of molecular cloning, DNA, RNA and protein work and extensive cell culture is required. Some experience in mouse genetics is preferable. Background in cancer biochemistry, metabolism, signaling and genetics will be considered favorably and interest in the above fields is necessary. Candidates with an interest in the position should send their CV and contact information for 3 references to: Biplab.DasGupta@cchmc.org.
Using genetically engineered mouse models and human tissue, the Dasgupta lab has been engaged in cutting-edge research to understand neural stem cell metabolism, genetic and metabolic uniqueness of glioblastoma (a type of brain tumor) subtypes, energy and nutrient sensing signaling pathways in cancer versus normal cellular counterparts and the built-in metabolic vulnerabilities of human cancer cells. We are also deeply interested to understand the mechanisms by which non-genetic factors regulate the incidence and penetrance of human cancer. We have published our work in highly visible journals including Nature Communications, PNAS, Cancer Cell, and Cancer Research. Our current study on a novel mechanism of tumorigenesis in pediatric brain tumors will be published soon in Neuro-Oncology, and studies on the bioenergetic regulation of brain tumors is under review in Nature Medicine.

City of Hope ポスドク募集

私の友人であるphysician-scientistのDr. Edward W. Wangが今年の8月からロサンゼルスにあるCity of Hopeで新たに研究室を立ち上げることになりました。そこで、彼の研究室でポスドクを1名募集することになったそうです。彼はとても人柄がよく、優しく、マメな方です。研究熱心で、研究の話をすると本当にサイエンスが好きなんだなということがわかります。また、日本人とも一緒に研究した経験を持っているので、日本人の性格をよく理解しているため、初めて海外で働く方にとっては働きやすいと思います。

彼の研究はがん細胞におけるTRAIL耐性についてです。もともとはDNAダメージに関する研究をしており、そこでp53をターゲットとしたsmall moleculesを検索していたそうですが、その際にdeath receptor (DR5) を多く誘導するsmall moleculesを見つけたそうです。このタンパクがTRAIL耐性を回復させる働きを持っているそうです。それを元に、将来的に臨床試験をすることを目的として、まずはトランスレーショナル研究としてメカニズムの解明に取り組んでいます。
