Research Opportunities 4/23/10

Training and Research Opportunity in Sensory Nerve Activation Investigation
We are looking for a student volunteer (or units, for Summer and beyond) who is interested in working in a lab that is investigating the receptor mediated activation of sensory nerves. The student will be involved in the characterization of a receptor that is responsive to nutrients, that when activated decreases the activity of pain responsive nerves. We would like to give a strongly motivated and committed student the opportunity to learn a number of standard techniques used in molecular biology and cell biology, so that they can actively participate and contribute to this project.

If interested, please send an email to aponte@berkeley.edu.
