Postdoctoral or visiting scholar Fellow Positions Available at UT Southwestern Medical Center
Multiple postdoctoral fellow positions are immediately available in Dr. Zhenyu Zhong’s lab at the Department of Immunology, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (https://www.utsouthwestern.edu/labs/zhong-zhenyu/).
By taking advantage of modern biomedical technologies and human disease-relevant animal models, the Zhong lab focuses on uncovering novel fundamental mechanisms by which inflammation is initiated, propagated and terminated when no longer needed.
Moreover, the lab is also interested in understanding how dysregulation of inflammation promotes the development devastating diseases, such as chronic liver disorders, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases (check out our recent publications: Nature. 2018 Aug;560(7717):198-203; Cell. 2016 Feb 25;164(5):896-910; Nat Commun. 2017 Apr 11;8:15004; Cell. 2016 Jul 14;166(2):288-298; Nat Immunol. 2017 Jul 19;18(8):861-869; Trends in Immunology. 2019 Dec;40(12):1120-1133).
