Technical assistant position in the Artegiani group

Our lab has expertise and interest in liver and brain biology and their associated diseases.

To this end, in the past years, we have developed 3D human organoid culture systems to grow mini-livers and mini-brains in a dish. We use these models together with state-of-the-art technologies such as for instance CRISPR-Cas9, to model different diseases, such as cancer and genetic disease, and to understand mechanisms underlining the pathogenesis as well as regulating proper organ development.
