Post-Doctoral Position available as part of the ERA4Health CARDINNOV project:
“Defining the ideal human Amniotic progenitor Secretome forMulation for future cArdioprotective paRacrine Therapy – AmnioSMART”
A 3-year position of Post-Doctoral Researcher is available in the research team led by prof. Sveva Bollini (Scopus ID: 22933852600; https://orcid.org/0000-0003-1076-0823), at IRCCS Ospedale Policlinico San Martino, in Genova, Italy from May 2024.
The selected applicant will have the opportunity to work on the ambitious and interdisciplinary AmnioSMART project recently funded by the ERA4Health CARDINNOV programme and aiming at pin pointing the ideal secretome formulation ensuring medium-to-long-term cardioprotective paracrine effects via optimized delivery by smart biomaterials.
The AmnioSMART project will unite internationally renowned Researchers from Italy, Portugal, Belgium and The Netherlands in an interdisciplinary yet synergic Consortium based on active and close collaborative relationship. The project will focus on a regenerative medicine and tissue engineering approach, combining stem cell-derived secretome biology with cutting-edge bioprinting, human induced pluripotent cell-technology, 3D modelling and spatial transcriptomics for precise administration of paracrine therapeutics.
The selected applicant will benefit from the dynamic environment of the labs within IRCCS Ospedale Policlinico San Martino area in central Genova, Italy. The research group has access to state-of-the-art equipment including cell culture facilities, time lapse-, transmission electron-, and 2-photon microscopy suites; advanced flow cytometry instruments (BD FACS Symphony S6), next generation sequencing facility (Illumina MiSeq and NextSeq 500 NGS platforms), MALDI imaging and ultimate CyTOF mass cytometry platforms.
