The Department of Pediatrics at Columbia University is seeking a student to volunteer in the laboratory of Dr. Dorrello. The individual will join a diverse group studying multiple aspects of lung regeneration with human/mice stem cell therapies in a small animal model. Dr. Dorrello’s lab is currently working to define the optimal strategies to selectively removing defective lung epithelial cells and supporting the proliferation and differentiation of lung progenitors towards healthy epithelium and ultimately lung repair in small animal models.
performing routine molecular biology techniques, such as immuno-staining and relative imaging/data analysis, functional assays, in vivo rodent experiments, harvesting and processing of tissues from rodents, and cell culture
Pursuing a degree in chemistry, biology, engineering or related science
Solid knowledge of molecular biology and cell culture
Skills in animal studies
Ability to communicate effectively with research personnel and/or veterinary staff
Strong oral and written communication skills
Strong interpersonal skills
Ability to work both individually and in groups
Part-time, 10 - 16 hours a week, with at least two days in a row.
Please email your CV, including the names and contact information of three references, and a brief description of your research experience to Dr. Dorello.
