In Central Institute for Experimental Animals, we use marmosets as model organisms to study primate biology, stem cells, and development aiming toward contributing to medicine. We are working on generation of sperms and eggs from iPS cell-derived primordial germ cells. We now recruit a postdoctoral researcher who conducts the project. This work is supported by JSPS Grant-in-Aid for Transformative Research Areas.
Generation of sperms and oocytes from primordial germ cells induced from iPS cells. Both experimental and bioinformatics approaches are acceptable. Experimental approach includes over expression of transcription factors, transplantation to marmosets/immunodeficient mice, in vitro culture of reconstituted gonads. Bioinformatics approach includes, for example, prediction of master transcription factors that regulate germ cell development and identification of growth factors required for germcell survival and differentiation. Applicants who can dedicated to this study are preferred. Experience in experimental biology or bioinformatics are required.
