Position Summary
The Laboratory of Dr. Michelle L. Block is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral appointee focused on discovering the molecular mechanisms underlying how air pollution impacts Alzheimer’s disease neuropathology.
The individual selected for this position will explore how the pulmonary and peripheral immune responses regulate the central nervous system response to air pollution in Alzheimer’s disease.
Murine in vivo studies and some cell culture models of Alzheimer’s disease will be routinely used along with molecular biology, histochemistry, single cell RNAseq, flow cytometry, NanoString technology, and imaging techniques (confocal, 2‐photon, fluorescence, and bright field microscopy) to address key questions.
The lab is part of the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology and the Stark Neurosciences Research Institute in Indianapolis, Indiana.
