Graduate Student - Understanding the Role of Matricellular Proteins in Kidney Diseases
University of Montreal Our projects are centered on a functional understanding of the ECM molecular processes that drive the initiation and progression of tissue remodeling processes, such as fibrosis and cancer. We employ genomics and proteomics to capture the cellular networks that modulate these processes and we seek to validate any new findings in vitro and in vivo in various kidney fibrotic models. A particular focus of our work is to apply our knowledge on matricellular protein signalling to identify potential therapeutic and biomarker applications to kidney fibrosis.
We are looking for a student who has conceptual knowledge of basic cell and molecular biology. Proficiency in spoken and written English is essential, as well as high accuracy, reliability, and good interpersonal skills. He/she will use various in vitro and in vivo approaches to investigate the molecular mechanisms of fibrosis, which will include methods in molecular biology, cell culture (primary cells and immortalized cell lines), histology, and mouse models of fibrosis, with the potential of translating findings into human biological samples. A major focus of experimentation will be on the pathway discovery of one of several matricellular proteins of interest to our laboratory.
