Cedars-Sinai Postdoctoral Scientist - Hematopoietic and Epithelial Cell Biology Research Cluster in California
postdoctoral scientists and other junior researchers fulfill a critical role in
expanding the horizons of medical knowledge through biomedical research. By
hosting more than 100 postdocs, who conduct vital research and receive advanced
training with expert faculty mentors, Cedars-Sinai supports the
ongoing medical education process that continues beyond PhD/MD graduation.
Overview: Hematopoietic and Epithelial Cell Biology
Postdoctoral scientists in the Hematopoietic & Epithelial Cell Biology Cluster (HECBC) will undergo training in the research laboratories of the Regenerative Medicine Institute (RMI). The RMI is under the directorship of Dr. Clive Svendsen and is supported by various prestigious funding agencies including NIH/NIDDK, NIH/NEI, American Heart Association and American Society of Nephrology. Research interests in the HECBC span fundamental studies aimed to gain deep, critical insights into the molecular underpinnings of hematopoietic and epithelial stem cell/progenitor systems, and their role in tissue repair and/or pathological remodeling after injury. The HECBC leverages upon the world-class immunology, ophthalmology and kidney transplant centers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, to conduct translational studies exploring mechanisms of human hematopoiesis, human eye disease and kidney repair.
