Position Description: An NIH-supported position is available for a post-doctoral fellow in Dr. Lee Quinton's laboratory at the Boston University School of Medicine. Dr. Quinton and his colleagues in the Pneumonia Biology Group of the BU Pulmonary Center investigate molecular mechanisms controlling immune resistance and tissue resilience in response to respiratory infection. Approaches for doing so include but are not limited to genetic mouse models, ex vivo methodologies, bioinformatics, and more, with the ultimate goal of elucidating cells and signals both inside and outside of the lungs that control pneumonia biology. Dr. Quinton's research program is particularly focused on lung-liver communication during pneumonia, as well as molecular determinants of epithelial barrier integrity in the airways.
