The latest opportunities from leading Universities across the UK.

This post will be based in the Immunology Group headed by Dr Yun Ma at the Institute of Liver Studies (ILS) at the King’s College Hospital and King’s College London, Denmark Hill campus. The post holder will be focused on two related projects: 

1) to assist the Regional Operational Coordinator (ROC) at King’s College Hospital for the project “Success in organ transplantation starts with quality in organ donation” (QUOD) managed by Oxford University. The main task is to process QUOD samples obtained from donors according to the protocol. The samples should be processed on time and then ship to the Oxford University on weekly basis. All the samples should be recorded accurately in the database. In addition, the candidate should attend regularly QUOD meeting and training in order to run QUOD project smoothly and to meet updated requirement. Meanwhile, the candidate should take care of the replenishment of consumables, database correction, incidents reporting, and replying any questions and sorting out any issues requested by QUOD members on daily basis. 

2) to perform liver transplantation related research project entitled: Assessing the effect of Andrographolide (Andro) on fatty liver graft in the setting of ex-situ normothermic machine perfusion: Andro is a botanical compound which has a potent anti-inflammatory property by inhibiting NF-κB, Nrf2 activation and in reducing fat content of liver in animal model. The candidate will collect hepatic mononuclear lymphocytes in liver perfusate and set up cell culture after adding different doses of Andro. Once the explanted fatty liver tissue is available, the immune cells within the liver tissue will be isolated to culture after adding Andro. The effect of Andro on immune cells will be assessed using FACs technique (multiple parameter flow cytometry and advanced flow cytometry data analysis). The co-culture of Andro treated immune cells with primary hepatocytes will be performed. The candidate should also have a strong background in molecular biology techniques (CRISPR/Cas9 editing tools, gene expression, ChIP, etc.), since the impact of Andro on gene expression will be assessed by RNA-seq, ChIP-seq analyses etc.

The candidate will also be involved in the training and supervision of PhD students and undergrade BSc students who are involved in related research projects.
