PhD position to study the role of cytoskeleton-regulatory proteins in platelet production and function
 
 
2 PhD positions are available at the Department of Experimental Biomedicine, Rudolf Virchow Center/University Hospital Würzburg, to investigate the role of microtubule and actin-regulatory proteins in the process of platelet production and function.
Conditions that cause insufficient platelet formation pose a risk of death due to bleeding complications and are of major clinical significance. A detailed understanding of the underlying cytoskeletal mechanisms involved in platelet production will yield improved therapies for platelet production disorders.
This DFG-funded project will require the use of advanced microscopy techniques, combined with microfluidic systems, cell biology, molecular biology, mouse genetics and retroviral infection.
