The Utah Clinical & Translational Science Institute (CTSI) is seeking a faculty co-director to lead its Cellular & Translational Research Core (CTRC) https://ctsi.utah.edu/cores-and-services/ctrc.
The CTRC provides stem cell, molecular biology, biobanking, and expert consultation services to support early translational and precision medicine research at the University, collaborating institutions, and nationwide. These services support longitudinal studies investigating the genetic basis of disease, functional analysis studies confirming disease-gene associations, and epidemiological studies.
- The CTRC DNA Extraction Facility has extensive experience in extracting high-quality DNA and RNA from blood and any tissue or cell type from human clinical or animal model biospecimens.
- The CTRC Stem Cell Facility generates feeder-free induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines from human blood, skin fibroblasts, and potentially other cell-types.
- The CTRC Biorepository supports the curation and secure storage of samples in 24-hour monitored freezers and liquid nitrogen tanks.
The Faculty Co-Director will lead the strategic and scientific direction of the CTRC and oversee operations, process design, and reporting.
Applications are due November 29, 2022.
The CTSI hopes you will consider this opportunity and share it with potentially interested colleagues!
