Connective tissues and the extracellular matrices of cells like fibroblasts hold our bodies together, contribute to systemic and organ failure with age, yet remain underappreciated in the field of aging biology. We take multiple approaches to understand why connective tissues fail with age and how to repair and regenerate them.
The need to repair the aging extracellular matrix (ECM) is an underappreciated aspect of modern regenerative medicine research. ICR is recruiting for a scientist with experience in human ECM biology and the motivation to create interventions that can repair aging ECM.
We're hiring Functional Genomics Scientists with expertise in Connective Tissue Disorders to join our efforts to reimagine the possibilities of personalized medicine. Your job will include taking deep dives on suspected pathogenic SNPs and VUSs (variants of unknown significance) to determine if they are indeed deleterious to protein/cellular function in the context of connective tissue diseases. We want you to go from gene(s) to protein(s) to phenotype(s).
