    Description Our recent work (named uDISCO) published in Nature Methods in August 2016, and highlighted by media worldwide including New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Nature and Science magazines. uDISCO demonstrated the possibility of clearing and imaging of entire adult rodents to map neuronal, glial and vascular connections. The positions focus on:

    1. Chemistry of tissue clearing and labelling:
    we are particularly interested in developing new chemical approaches to fluorescently label molecules (proteins, DNA or RNA) and deliver them deep in tissue for whole organ and organism profiling. To this end, we are looking for a highly ambitious researcher with a good understanding of chemistry behind the tissue clearing and molecular tagging. We offer interactive environment to integrate your skills with cutting edge imaging methods and biological applications.

    2. Study of chronic neurodegeneration and neuroinflammation:
    we would like to utilize our recently developed uDISCO tissue-clearing method to assess degeneration and regeneration in the intact CNS of transparent rodents and human tissues at micron resolution after acute brain injuries. The project requires knowledge in cellular and molecular biology, animal handling, and fluorescent microscopy.
