A research associate position is available to work on a project examining vascular growth factor therapy for polycystic kidney disease. The role, following on from previous work (Huang et al J Am Soc Nephrol 2016 27: 69-77) will be to investigate how treatments using proteins which restore and stabilise changes in small blood vessels slow the progressive decline of polycystic kidneys.

The post is funded for 24 months by the Medical Research Council and will be based in Dr David Long’s kidney development and disease group.
