The position is for a project focusing on single-molecule and superresolution imaging of oncogenic signaling processes, with a focus on the nanoscopic spatial regulation of Ras GTPases and HER family receptors. The Nan laboratory is equipped with a suite of advanced imaging tools including multispectral superresolution microscopy (MSSRM) and interferometric photoactivated localization microscopy (iPALM). These tools will allow a much more systematic and accurate view of the molecular details that govern the biology of Ras and HER in model cell lines and tissues.
As the state's only health and research university, OHSU brings together patient care, research, education of the next generation of health care providers and scientists and community service to improve the health and well-being of all Oregonians.The university is a conduit for learning for more than 2,800 students, providing training to interns, residents and fellows in postgraduate medical and r...esearch. It is the only place in Oregon that grants doctoral degrees in medicine, dentistry and nursing. OHSU cares for more than 251,000 patients each year from around the region and takes a leadership role in contributing to solutions involving the health of the state and the nation, such as health care access and transparency, ethics and workforce shortage. Beyond providing critical health care services, quality education and cutting-edge research, OHSU also is a key economic and social force in the Northwest.
