Job opportunitIes

In the Neuroinflammation & Endogenous Repair Lab, we are interested in understanding the biological mechanisms that regulate central nervous system inflammation. Neuroinflammation is a common feature of nervous system disorders, our goal is to manipulate this response to promote repair following spinal cord and brain injury.

We are always on the lookout for talented scientist to join our research group and have Some positions available
