The Papé Research Institute is dedicated to building a state-of-the-art research facility with a focus on studying numerous childhood diseases, such as diabetes, neurological disorders, hemophilia, pediatric cancer and metabolic disorders. The overall focus of our research program is on the development of novel therapies for disorders with currently inadequate treatments.
Searching for either a Research Associate -OR- Senior Research Associate to join a laboratory that is studying the central nervous system mechanisms of involuntary weight loss and wasting (cachexia) during the development of cancer. The project involves the use of in vitro and murine models to understand the impact of peripheral cancers on autonomic nervous system function in the periphery. This project also has an associated clinical trial that will provide samples and data to confirm the basic hypotheses generated in the preclinical work. This NIH-funded study will define mechanisms of autonomic nervous system plasticity in the setting of chronic stress and inflammation, and will test novel therapeutics to address this debilitating condition.
