Research Assistant position is available in Laboratory of Neural Stem cells at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School, Singapore
The main job scopes include overseeing a laser scanning Confocol, carrying out research projects and routine lab organization.
Fruit fly Drosophila neural stem cells, larval brain neuroblasts, has recently emerged as an excellent model for the study of stem cell self-renewal and tumorigenesis. The balance between self-renewal and differentiation are achieved by asymmetric division of neuroblasts, Drosophila neural stem cells. Defects in asymmetric cell division can results in the imbalance that leads to brain tumor formation. We are interested in studying the molecular mechanism of asymmetric division of neuroblasts and the balance of self-renewal and differentiation. We use a combination of genetics, cell biology and biochemical approaches to study the functions of critical brain tumor suppressors.
