Off-cycle Internship

Research & DevelopmentRochester

Description

  • The main focus of Dr. Devaux’s lab is the development of safe and efficient negative strand RNA virus-based vectors for gene therapy and cellular reprogramming. This vector is based on the measles virus vaccine, one of the safest vaccines in the World. The group previously developed the measles virus into a single-cycle vector and expressed the four reprogramming factors identified as essential to reprogram somatic cells into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The lab aims to develop new therapies for hematological disorders, cancer immunotherapy, and Diabetes based on integration-free measles vectors.

Requirements

  • Must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent doctoral degree in a field deemed relevant by the program. Research Fellow is appropriate for individuals who have completed no more than one prior postdoctoral fellowship, at Mayo Clinic or elsewhere.
