The laboratory of Dr. Jessica Fortin at Purdue University (Fortin Drug Discovery Lab) has an opening for a PhD Candidate in Basic Medical Sciences with a special focus on Neurodegenerative Drug Discovery. PhD candidate will investigate the anti-fibrillary activity of small molecules via protein assays, cell-based assays, and transgenic rodent model. Our prime target for the optimized small molecules is hyperphosphorylated tau, but opportunities will be available to work with relevant targets for neurodegenerative disease drug discovery. The Fortin Drug Discovery Lab at CVM Purdue University consists of a multidisciplinary research team involving medicinal chemistry, assay development, fluorescence probing, and proof of concept studies. Our research lab is member of the Purdue Institute
