Pathologie & Medische Biologie
The postdoc will be working within the department of Pathology & Medical Biology (PMB) of the University Medical Center Groningen, laboratory of Experimental Pulmonology and Inflammation Research (EXPIRE
). Within PMB, multiple renowned research groups work on pathophysiological damage and repair processes, using translational and multi-omic approaches (transcriptomics e.g. single cell RNA sequencing, proteomics etc), and state-of-the-art cellular and molecular techniques, to obtain insights into novel therapeutic strategies. The research will be embedded within the Groningen Research Institute for Asthma and COPD (GRIAC
), a multidisciplinary and highly translational research institute performing fundamental and applied patient-related research with the aim to unravel underlying mechanisms of the development and progression of lung diseases, including asthma, COPD and pulmonary fibrosis. There will be a close collaboration with the consortium partners from the departments of Pulmonary Diseases and Thoracic Surgery of the UMCG (Prof. Dirk-Jan Slebos, Dr. Michiel Erasmus) and the departments of Developmental BioEngineering and Engineered Therapeutics of University Twente (Prof. Jeroen Leijten and Prof. Jai Prakash).
