Animal Genetics Lab Assistant and Researchers
The Wang lab is seeking for highly motivated, ambitious, creative, and hardworking individuals to join the lab for MS/PhD trainings. The current projects are to employ the CRISPR system and other genetic engineering techniques 1) to develop genetically engineered Syrian hamster, guinea pig, deer mouse (among which we are the first to succeed in establishing genetic engineering technologies) and other rodents and farm animal species for human disease modeling and drug discovery/testing, and 2) to identify and correct the genetic mutations causing hereditary diseases in livestock (cattle) and companion animals (horses, alpaca/ilama and cat). The Wang lab is also conducting research to establish and characterize embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) in non-murine rodent species and livestock with a focus on human regenerative medicine.
