Description

The Clark Lab at the State University of New York at Buffalo is looking to build a team to investigate a second-generation preclinical model of Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP). PSP is a devastating neurodegenerative disease, which shares attributes with Alzheimer’s disease: tau protein aggregates, cognitive and motor deficits. The goal is to identify neurons that are perturbed early in the disease process and that contribute to key aspects of the behavioral deficits and underlying pathology. This knowledge will allow for improved diagnosis and the initiation of pharmacotherapeutic discovery programs. The lab seeks a postdoctoral fellow to work with a team of graduate students and technical staff. The research duties will include surgical manipulation in rats followed by behavioral, biochemical, histological, and MRI analysis.
