Postdoctoral Fellow

Staff Name: 
Terry P. Yamaguchi, Ph.D.
Cancer and Developmental Biology Laboratory
Job Category: 
Multiple Positions Available: 
Research Area Keywords: 

Wnt, FGF, stem cells, embryonic development

Position Description: 

A new Postdoctoral Fellow position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Terry Yamaguchi at the National Cancer Institute. Dr.Yamaguchi's lab investigates how secreted growth factors regulate the gene regulatory networks that control the fate of embryonic and adult stem cells. Current projects focus on understanding how Wnts and Fgfs regulate the formation and differentiation of the neuromesodermal progenitor (NMP), a multipotent embryonic cell that generates the spinal cord neurons and musculoskeletal system of the body. Using a combination of mouse genetics, mouse and human embryonic stem cell in vitro differentiation, and genomic, proteomic and biochemical approaches, Dr. Yamaguchi’s lab is investigating the molecular mechanisms underlying the activity of key transcriptional determinants of NMP development.
