Research in the field of neurodegeneration

Opportunity for fellowships at Lab of Experimental Biology, Università degli Studi di Milano

The lab of Experimental Biology directed by Prof. Angelo Poletti is seeking talented and motivated young fellows/Postdoctoral researchers to join pre-clinical research in the field of neurodegeneration.

Our research group is dedicated to exploring the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the protein quality control system and its protective role against proteinopathies affecting the central nervous system and muscle.

Among these, particular attention is devoted to motor neuron diseases and neuromuscular disorders, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy; other studied diseases include frontotemporal dementias, Huntington’s disease, spinocerebellar ataxia type 17 (SCA-17), and various myopathies.

We are accepting applications for 2 positions (assegno di ricerca) within our team under the supervision of Prof. Valeria Crippa and Prof. Riccardo Cristofani.
