Basel is the headquarters of the Roche Group and one of its most important centres of pharmaceutical research. Over 8,500 people from approximately 90 countries work in Basel, which is one of Roche`s largest sites.
Within the Ophthalmology group, the Ocular Technologies Section aims to develop innovative, disease-relevant models of eye diseases. These models (in vivo, ex vivo and in vitro) are used to gain a greater understanding of disease biology and identify and validate new drug candidates. Currently, we are looking for a student to study how the innervation of the cornea changes in different human diseases and mouse models.
The successful candidate will use ex vivo tissue samples and a combination of molecular and image-based approaches to understand how the morphology and activity of neurons changes during disease. Our goal will be to identify novel endpoints to analyze the effects of new drug candidates, giving the opportunity for the successful student to directly impact the drug discovery process.
