A call for applications is open for a biologist or biotechnologist interested in working on the molecular mechanisms underlying PNPT1-dependent diseases. The call is for a 12 month (renewable) type B research grant is available at the following link:
Bando di tipo B – Prof.ssa Briani – ID 5304 | Università degli Studi di Milano Statale (unimi.it)
(Deadline 10 May)
Title of the study: Molecular characterization of PNPase pathological variants
The goal of this research is to understand the molecular basis of pathologies due to mutations in the PNPT1 gene. These mutations alter the functionality of PNPase, a mitochondrial protein essential for cell survival and very conserved in evolution.
Role and responsibility:
The candidate will participate in the construction and characterization of human cell lines with mutations in the PNPT1 gene and in the development of in vitro assays for the study of PNPase activity.
