Mayo Clinic Arizona

The Khosravi Immunoengineering Lab in the Department of Immunology at the Mayo Clinic Arizona is seeking two Postdoc Research Fellows in the areas of autoimmunity and transplantation. The Immunoengineering Lab research focuses on developing and applying novel ways of inducing immune tolerance using integrated approaches that combine laboratory, clinical, and computational methods. The engineering of immune cells is an integral part of these novel methods. The focuses of current research projects: 1) to develop chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) Tregs with enhanced stability and functionality for inducing immune tolerance in transplantation and xenotransplantation; 2) to study Tregs in autoimmune diseases and apply engineering strategies to develop autologous Treg therapies for these patients. In both studies, in vitro assays and humanized mouse models will be used to test the effectiveness of Treg-based immunotherapies.  Interested applicants please send a cover letter and curriculum vitae, including the names of three references, to Dr. Mohsen Khosravi Maharlooei.
