Nature of Work
Laboratory Science Professionals perform duties in an experimental lab, or wet lab, and handle a variety of chemicals and/or potential “wet” hazards. Laboratory Science Professionals perform duties in laboratories where chemicals, drugs, or other materials or biological matters are tested and analyzed. Some Assignments will not move beyond the senior level.
This Laboratory Science Professional will be supporting the work of Dr. Andrea Bonetto’s laboratory in the Department of Pathology through basic and translational research aimed at investigating the musculoskeletal consequences of cancer and its treatments (i.e., cachexia), with a special focus on the inter-organ complications affecting muscle, bone and liver. These studies are funded by multiple sources, including NIH/NIAMS and American Cancer Society. The laboratory is also interested in unraveling the molecular causes responsible for the muscle and bone abnormalities resulting from metabolic dysfunctions and aging. The laboratory uses state of-the-art technologies and tissue-specific mutant mouse models to examine the molecular mechanisms that trigger cancer-induced musculoskeletal defects. The projects are highly collaborative and multidisciplinary with excellent opportunities for advanced training and scientific development.
