Postdoc to Investigate the Cellular Phase of Alzheimer’s Disease Using Spatial Transcriptomics

VIB

Leuven, Belgium

In this project we will investigate why some people remain protected against Alzheimer’s Disease despite the presence of amyloid plaques. Understanding why some people are resilient to Alzheimer’s disease will help us to identify new drug targets. The candidate will use spatial omics such as spatial transcriptomics, in situ sequencing, and multiplexed proteomics to untangle the cellular response to amyloid plaques and tangles in resilient and Alzheimer’s brains.
