Dr. Valerio Chiurchiù is looking for a postdoctoral fellow to work on field of chemotherapy-induced cognitive impairment known as “chemofog”.
The position is financed by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research on PNRR European Founding (PRIN 2022 – PNRR) and is a partnership with the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology “Vittorio Erspamer” of Sapienza University of Rome.
The project aims at investigating the role of microglia in chemotherapy-induced learning and memory impairment in a rodent model of ‘chemofog’ in models of microglia-depleted mice in either white- or grey-matter and the underlying molecular mechanisms, structural and functional synaptic alterations. The technical approach of the project is multidisciplinary and it involves behavioral studies, electrophysiology, immunohistochemistry, transcriptomics and high-dimensional flow cytometry.
