About the Project
The Dementia Research Centre (DRC) is offering a 3-year PhD-stipend to investigate the physiological role of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) expressed in the brain. Using the latest CRISPR genome editing technologies, this project will provide new knowledge in the field by generating and analysing new mouse models of centrally expressed lncRNAs in order to better understand the contribution of lncRNAs to health and disease. The multidisciplinary research program of the Dementia Research Centre at Macquarie University provides ample opportunities to learn and apply cutting-edge technologies to decipher mechanisms in brain functions and diseases.
