The Molecular and cellular neurobiotechnology group at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) is looking for Laboratory Technician to contribute to the development of novel methods for Neurodegenerative studies using microfluidics and in vitro platforms.

The contract will be within the framework of the project “Fabrication of novel microfluidic devices and applications to monitor tau-related neurodegeneration in vitro”.

Mechanical signals involved in the early development of the mouse cerebral cortex described for the first time

A scientific team coordinated by José Antonio del Río from the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) observed the mechanical signals and traction forces involved in the migration of Cajal-Retzius cells, a group of neurons that play an important role in the development of the cerebral cortex. The study, conducted on rodents, has been published in the journal Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology.
