We are seeking enthusiastic postdoctoral researchers interested in disease mechanism researches that have potential to develop novel therapies. Our research focuses on vascular diseases in the eye and cancer. We use a unique technology of comparative ligandomics to profile disease-related cell-regulating proteins, followed by characterization of their functional activity, disease selectivity, pathogenic role and therapeutic potentials in vitro and in vivo. These researches involve molecular biology, cellular biology, protein biochemistry, recombinant viruses for gene transfer, phage display, antibody engineering, RNA-seq, bioinformatic analysis and animal models. Candidates with motivation to develop a successful career as a scientific professional in biomedical research are encouraged to apply.
