The Hagerman Laboratory within the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine uses molecular techniques to characterize neurological disorders related to the FMR1 gene, specifically, fragile X syndrome (FXS) and fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS). Principal effort continues to be directed to the molecular characterization of gene expression and cellular pathways that underlie the pathogenesis of these disorders. Relevant fundamental techniques will place heavy reliance on human cell culture with fibroblasts and iPSC-derived neuronal cells; such techniques will include DNA, RNA, and protein extraction; qRT-PCR; TR-FRET; Western blot analysis; immunostaining; high-content imaging; mRNA- and miRNA-seq preparation; bioinformatics analysis; and both analytical and preparative flow cytometry. Additional, ongoing assay development will include TMT-MS and CGG-repeat allele typing. Continued development and optimization of assays will be pursued as needed to further the research goals of the laboratory. Research in the lab also relies heavily on the processing of both human and non-human (mammalian) brain tissues and blood samples. Importantly, the position requires the ability to conduct experiments and troubleshoot with minimal supervision, to interpret and document results, and to effectively communicate those results orally and in writing.
