uk: Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Stromal Immunology [100% | Duties: The Arthritis & Regenerative Medicine Laboratory is investigating the roles that mesenchymal stromal/stem cells (MSCs) play in joint health and diseases, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The lab has established a unique set of tools and models to study the endogenous MSCs in the joint. Recent work has demonstrated the presence of distinct MSC niches in the knee joint synovium (Arthritis Rheum 2011), and has identified a specialised MSC population with the ability to maintain and repair joint tissues including the cartilage (Nature Commun 2017).
