THYMUS TRANSPLANTATION SCIENTIST
The Thymus Transplantation Team at Great Ormond Street Hospital and UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health is looking for an energetic and enthusiastic post-doctoral researcher to work in the thymus transplantation research programme. They are one of only two centres in the world treating children with thymus transplantation and the successful applicant will be part of a growing team focused on exciting translational research, with the ultimate aim of improving the outcomes for children with congenital athymia.
As the research fellow you will be working closely with the Thymus Transplantation team and taking a major role in the work involving the generation of induced pluripotent stem cells and thymic epithelial precursors from patients’ fibroblasts as a means of investigating novel defects of thymic epithelial cell development, as well as the use of thymic organoid cultures for further disease modelling.
There will be opportunity for the postholder to develop their own project within the overall umbrella of this work.
