Participate in cutting edge research in the fields of neural stem and progenitor cells with the long-term goal to improve therapies for brain tumor patients. Join the laboratory that discovered asymmetric cell division in the mammalian adult brain and help us to uncover the origin for the myelin sheet and brain tumors. The Petritsch lab aims to unravel how cell fate decisions are derailed in tumorigenesis and to thereby find novel therapeutic vulnerabilities in gliomas. Oligodendrocyte progenitor cells (OPC) are one potential origin of human oligodendroglioma and astrocytoma. OPC are the only adult brain cell type reported to undergo asymmetric cell divisions (ACD) to determine the fate of their progeny. ACD are a fundamental mechanism to establish cell fate diversity and when disrupted can turn normal oligodendrocyte progenitor cells into tumor cells. To uncover the mechanism for ACD, we use time-lapse imaging, stem cell culturing, cutting-edge molecular and cellular approaches such as Crispr/Cas9 and preclinical tumor models. The applicant will help in the development and enhancement of such approaches. We provide training for: - Planning of mouse model experiments and genotyping; mouse handling is optional - Cell isolation and culturing of primary murine progenitor cells - Molecular biological and cell culture based assays including quantitative tests for differentiation and polarity/asymmetric cell division, Crispr/Cas9 -time-lapse imaging You will be helping out an experienced student in the lab, attend lab meetings and discussion groups and participate in data generation for manuscripts. The Petritsch lab has a history of mentoring interns to become paid research staff or to enter medical or graduate school, depending on their plans. Pls include a CV stating your research interest, future career plans, past semester grades (unoffical) and GPA (unofficial). If applicable, pls provide detailed description of prior research experience and list 2-3 references.

About Arts in Review & Book Reviews at The Wall Street JournalCriticism of books and the arts are recognized at the Journal as an editorial function, and as such operate under the umbrella of the the Opinion section. Like the rest of the Opinion section, in our Arts and Book reviews we believe in rendering clear, independent judgments that are as well-argued as they are deeply informed.In its Arts reviews, the Journal covers the full spectrum, from high art to TV, movies, theater and the many forms of popular music. Our approach is strictly art-for-art’s-sake: We review things because they are intrinsically interesting, not to fulfill a quota. We believe in the past and its traditions, but are keenly interested in the new—not in novelty for its own sake but in the ways those traditions are being extended and new ones invented. And we prize above all a lively, lucid prose style free from jargon of all kinds. The Journal’s Book reviews are among the most timely, most widely read and most influential in American literary journalism. Our daily reviews are part of the Opinion section, and focus on nonfiction books of interest to ambitious readers of politics, business, science, religion and the issues of the day. Our weekend reviews, which make up a stand-alone six-page Books section in print, offer judicious criticism of the best of the week’s new titles in a broad cross-section of subject areas, from the fine arts and literary fiction to popular culture, narrative nonfiction, children’s books and more. In all we do, our goal is simple: to cut through the noise of hype and publicity to identify true excellence in publishing--and then match it with excellence in reviewing.
