PhD Position in Cytokine Signaling in Macrophages – Amsterdam UMC

Project Info

Beyond the well-known JAK-STAT signaling pathways, the candidate will study cytokine signaling pathways in macrophages. Disease states are influenced by the way macrophage phenotypes are shaped by cytokines. It is unknown how cytokine-specific responses might arise because numerous cytokines with opposite roles use very similar JAK-STAT signalling pathways. Finding new, cytokine-specific variables controlling macrophage cytokine responses is the aim.
