Postdoc position available in the Pollack Lab (Pathology Dept.), to develop novel human cell/tissue models of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), to improve understanding and treatments.
The Pollack lab uses genomic approaches to study human disorders, with a current emphasis on diseases of the prostate. BPH is common but understudied, where new approaches integrating molecular profiling and single-cell analysis are beginning to define the pathogenic cells and pathways. However, better cell and tissue models are needed to translate new knowledge into improved treatments. The postdoc will work with human tissues and cells to better model BPH pathogenic processes, identify key genes and pathways, and evaluate candidate therapies.
