OpenPosition@NICO - prof. Buffo NSC-RECONSTRUCT

A Postdoctoral Fellowship is available in the Physiopathology of Neural Stem Cell group at the Neuroscience Institute Cavalieri Ottolenghi (Orbassano, Torino, Italy), led by Annalisa Buffo. The fellowship is funded within NSC-Reconstruct, a 4-year H2020 European Union supported Project coordinated by Prof. Elena Cattaneo - University of Milan (Deputy Coordinator: Prof. Malin Parmar - Lund University).

We are seeking for a highly-motivated, communicative and inventive postdoc who will be part of an enthusiastic team and of the NSC-Reconstruct collaborative network. The main focus will be to reconstruct complex functional striatal circuits through the integration of human striatal neurons and glia grafted in preclinical models of Huntington’s disease. We will work toward this aim by combining control of graft composition, control of the host injured milieu and modulation of circuit

UniStem Day 2022 - Sogni e Incertezza... è la scienza, bellezza!

Dopo due edizioni online è tornato UniStem Day in presenza!
Venerdì 11 marzo l'infinito viaggio della ricerca ha fatto di nuovo tappa a Torino: ad accoglierlo 200 studenti delle scuole superiori del Piemonte nella bellissima cornice dell'Aula Magna della Cavallerizza Reale dell'Università di Torino. Erano invece oltre 300 gli studenti collegati online per la diretta streaming su UnitoMedia.
