The Laboratory of Dr. Yulan Xiong at Kansas State University is seeking Post Docs and PhD student candidates. The research positions will be working on the molecular pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease. Our lab uses various model systems including yeast, Drosophila, mice, primary and human neuronal cultures. The general approach in our lab is to use a powerful combination of genetics, molecular biology and behavioral analysis to decipher the molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative diseases in humans.
