Knowledge of Italian language. Applications and CVs sent by e-mail are not accepted. To apply http://www.unige.it/concorsi/assricerca/ Neurodevelopmental abnormalities underlying neurological disorders associated with CNVs, are still far to be elucidated due to technical limitations and lack of proper models mimicking the complex genomic background. Although the clinical significance of these recurrent CNVs is well established, the underlying pathophysiology is still far to be elucidated. Somatic cell reprogramming allows to generate human neurons from induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (iPSC). iPSCs preserves the complex genomic background of each individual patient and therefore represents a unique approach to investigate the pathophysiology of CNVs at a cellular level.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
