Human Islet Amyloid Polypeptide (hIAPP) Aggregation
Zanni group seeks a researcher to study the molecular mechanism of protein aggregation associated with type 2 diabetes. We believe that we have trapped a (the?) toxic oligomer of hIAPP and we are working to better characterize it both spectroscopically and biochemically. The position would entail learning 2D IR spectroscopy as well as wet-techniques like peptide synthesis, cellular toxicity assays, culture of pancreatic islets, and may involve sacrificing mice or at least working with the tissues of sacrificed mice. No prior experience necessary. We are looking for people who have or want to broaden their skillset. Here is a link to some of our papers on the topic. Contact us and we will send more specifics on the project.
