The Chute laboratory studies hematopoietic stem cells and the regulation of hematopoietic stem cell fate through the microenvironment, or niche. Our laboratory also studies the mechanisms that govern malignant transformation of hematopoietic stem cells to leukemia stem cells. Postdoctoral Scientists in the Chute laboratory will utilize state-of-the-art molecular biology techniques, genetic models, imaging and quantitative assessments of hematopoietic stem cells and their progeny in order to discover and characterize novel mechanisms that control hematopoietic stem cell fate. In keeping with this, the Postdoctoral Scientist will also be involved in the design of therapeutic targeting studies using small molecules or custom – designed antibodies to promote hematopoietic regeneration in vitro and in vivo. In this role, the Postdoctoral Scientist will be expected to work independently under the direction of the Principal Investigator (P.I.) and in close cooperation, as well as consultation, with other research staff. As a Postdoctoral Scientist, perform routine and complex laboratory procedures throughout the training period and may develop, adapt, and implement new research techniques and protocols.
