DescriptionThe Brugmann Lab is looking for a postdoctoral research associate interested in skeletal biology related to craniofacial development and disease. Craniofacial abnormalities (CFAs) are associated with approximately one-third of all birth defects. Surgical repair of CFAs is difficult and often requires a large source of skeletal tissue to replace/reconstruct the facial skeleton. Bone grafts used to repair CFAs are commonly allografts from mesodermally derived bone. This source is suboptimal since the facial skeleton is embryonically derived from an entirely different population of cells called neural crest cells, which have never been utilized
