Postdoctoral researcher

Sanger Institute

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to study cellular immune responses to herpesvirus infection. The researcher will study cytomegalovirus infection of iPS-derived cells, using techniques including CRISPR to identify mechanisms that regulate virus-induced pro-inflammatory cytokine production. This is a collaborative project between Dr Ian Humphreys (Cardiff University) and Professor Gordon Dougan (Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, WTSI). The individual will be based at the WTSI, but it is envisaged that short visits to Cardiff may be required. In the first instance, this Wellcome Trust-funded position will commence ~July 2016 and is available until September 2017. Extension possible.

 

Please send any expressions of interest to Dr Ian Humphreys (humphreysir@cf.ac.uk).

The new Capella building- CITIID

See the home of CITIID being built in this fantastic time-lapse video. From basement to water tight in 17 months. The Capella building will be finished in 2018.

Fibroblast

‘Fibroblast’ has been developed from a conversation between Harold Offeh and Dr Alice Denton, a scientist based at the Babraham Institute and a member of the Cambridge Immunology Network. Offeh was particularly interested in the character and roles played by particular cells in the immune system, as well as the immune system’s role as a primary source of protection and care. The film takes as a starting point microscopic images of broblast cells, an area of research for Dr Denton.
