Dr. Joshua Milner, internationally renowned physician-scientist whose research has uncovered the genetic underpinnings of allergic diseases in children, has recently joined the Department of Pediatrics at the Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Dr. Milner is seeking for multiple Postdoctoral Research Scientists with experience in human and/or mouse lymphocyte immunology to join his lab.
Research: Dr. Milner’s lab is studying patients with known or yet to be discovered monogenic diseases of allergy in order to determine how genetic lesions cause atopic phenotypes. Lymphocyte receptor and cytokine signaling pathways are often implicated, as well as novel pathways more poorly understood, leading to a research program that integrates signaling and differentiation studies, disease modeling with functional study of mutant transfections, and in some cases, mouse models of human disease.
This is an excellent opportunity to gain expertise in an innovative area at the interface of genomics and immunology with direct clinical relevance as well.
