Adult stem cells are key player in the regeneration of their corresponding tissue, and in the intestine these cells are located in the bottom of the crypt, proliferate every ~24h and have the ability to differentiate to all epithelial lineages including enterocytes, goblet, Paneth, enteroendocrine, tuft and microfold cells. These cells have multiple tasks in nutrient absorbing, mucus secretion, antimicrobial agents production, hormone secretion and cytokines production. Our group is interested in finding immunological properties of adult stem cells that may be involve in skewing differentiation patterns, altering communication with the microenvironment and dictating tissue response to various tissue stresses.

The Biton's lab is looking for a motivated post-doctoral fellow to explore epithelial-immune interactions in the gut. Prior experience with in vivo mouse studies, immunology, tissue or computational biology are not required but could be an advantage.
