Mathematical modelling of tissue stem cells

Description

Phd Research position in the department of Department of Molecular Cell Biology at Weizmann institute of Science in the group of Shalev Itzkovitz for 5 years. The intestinal epithelium is composed of long-lived stem cells that continuously divide to maintain their numbers while generating shorter-lived progenies. Stem cells can modulate their rates and modes of divisions to achieve physiological goals such as maintaining tissue homeostasis and minimising the accumulation of mutations. We seek to develop computational tools based on stochastic processes and optimal control theory to model the rates and modes of division of individual stem cells. Predictions from these models can be readily validated using clonal lineage tracing strategies that are currently applied in the lab.
