Phd research position in the department of Department of Biological Chemistry
Axon to soma communication in nerve growth and regeneration.
Phd Research position in the department of Department of Biological Chemistry at Weizmann institute of Science in the group of Mike Fainzilber for 5 years. Nerve axons are extremely long in cellular terms, extending many orders of magnitude longer than the diameters of their parent cell bodies. How then is the cell body informed of an injury in distant portions of the axon? We are working on the molecular mechanisms of long distance communication within neurons, and their implications for neuronal growth and regeneration. People can integrate to a range of projects within this theme. For an overview of our research topics please visit the group home page at http://www.weizmann.ac.il/Biological_Chemistry/scientist/Fainzilber/Fainzilber.html . Selected publications are available at http://www.weizmann.ac.il/Biological_Chemistry/scientist/Fainzilber/new_pages/selected_pub.html . Also please note that research in our group requires work in animal models (mice, rats).
