Post-Doctoral Position Available
My laboratory in the Experimental Immunology Branch of the National Cancer Institute has a postdoctoral position available to study the Cell Biology of Antigen Processing and Presentation. Our research program is focused on defining the molecular mechanisms by which APCs activate CD4 T cells. Current projects investigate the mechanisms regulating MHC class II-peptide formation and turnover, the molecular regulation of MHC class II recycling in APCs, and APC function in tumor-bearing mice. Our experimental approaches include biochemical, cell biological, and immunological analyses using wild-type and genetically altered mice. We have a highly interactive group studying both T cell activation by APCs and intracellular protein transport in immune cells.
