Neuroscaffolds- Rapid prototyping scaffolds for the nervous system EU Collaborative project FP7-NMP-2013-EU-China Grant Agreement no.604263 NEUROSCAFFOLDS Rapid prototyping scaffolds for the nervous system NMP3-SL-2013-604263

Research Project requires proven ability to grow rat primary hippocampal neuronal cells and organotypic spinal cord slices inside three-dimensional scaffolds made of carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Cellular constituents of these organic/inorganic hybrid systems have to be subsequently morpho-functionally characterized. Proven confocal immunostaining analysis and electrophysiology measurements (dual and whole cell patch-clamping) skills are required as well as knowledge of protocols to induce and study neuronal plasticity in the 3D cellular network. The analysis of submicrometrical structures (CNTs) of the material requires an additional expertise in atomic force microscopy (AFM) imaging technique, possibly also in liquid environment. Moreover, in order to induce genetic modifications in neuronal cells we require proven ability in primary neuronal cells transfections as well.

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!
