Profile

Postdoctoral fellow positionin Angiogenesis/Immunology at Harvard/MGH Laboratory of Angiogenesis and Inflammation, Dr. Alexander G. Marneros,

Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School, Boston Our laboratory is investigating molecular mechanisms that control macrophage activation and the role of macrophages for inflammation and pathological angiogenesis.

We have established in vitro assays to identify regulators of macrophage polarization. For example, in a chemical screen we could identify chemical inhibitors of alternative macrophage polarization (M2-type macrophages) and could show in vivo that these inhibitors can inhibit macrophage-induced angiogenesis (JBC, 2014; Cell Reports, 2013; Am J Path, 2013).

This project aims to define molecular pathways that are critical in determining macrophage polarization and that influence the ability of activated macrophages to induce pathological angiogenesis in conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, cancer or wound healing.

Our laboratory is embedded in a highly productive and well-equipped environment at Massachusetts General Hospital of Harvard Medical School.lab website: http://www.massgeneral.org/research/researchlab.aspx?id=1076Interested candidates should send the CV and references to Alexander G.
