This person will be working in Pre-Therapeutic Target Discovery in Tarrytown, NY. The Pre-therapeutic Target Discovery group does basic research for early discovery of potential targets for biologic drug therapies. The Tier1 process is a standardized set of phenotyping assays to study the effects of targeted mouse gene knockouts affecting secreted and transmembrane proteins. Phenotyping assays include blood chemistry, hematology (CBC), body composition, tumor growth, splenic immune cell profiling, transcription profiling with RNASeq, in vivo gene expression analysis with a LacZ reporter, microscopy and image analysis for histology, morphology and development. The Tier informatics team manages the organization, analysis and presentation of data generated with a variety of technologies, such as automated serum chemistry and hematology instruments, flow cytometry, microcomputed tomography (uCT) and high-resolution episcopic microscopy (HREM).

The student will work on one of the following potential project areas:
