    A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Boyce, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and the Center for Musculoskeletal Research at the University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, following the successful renewal of an NIH RO-1 grant that has been funded continuously since 1995. Dr. Boyce is a surgical pathologist specializing in the diagnosis of bone and soft tissue diseases and a basic scientist with an interest in the regulation of bone turnover in normal and pathologic conditions. Work in our lab has focused on the role of NF-kB signaling in the formation and activity of osteoclasts and osteoblasts, following our discovery >25 years ago that NF-kB positively regulates osteoclast formation. Current work focuses on the role of TRAF3/NF-kB in osteoclast precursors as a negative regulator of RANKL-induced osteoclast formation and also as a negative regulator of TGFb-induced inhibition of mesenchymal progenitor cell (MPC) differentiation into osteoblasts. Through this work, we have identified a novel subset of B cells that express RANKL and CXCR4 and found that their numbers are increased in the bone marrow (BM) of mice with TRAF3 conditionally deleted in osteoclast precursors and are the most abundant RANKL-expressing cells in BM of aging mice.  We hypothesize that these cells are attracted to the BM during aging by MPCs that have increased expression of CCL12, a ligand for CXCR4, as a result of NF-kB-induced low-level chronic inflammation of aging, and cause age-related increased bone resorption. We plan to fully characterize these cells phenotypically using flow cytometry and single cell and bulk RNA-seq, map their locations in bone using a Fluidigm Hyperion CyTOF platform, and determine if: 1) they accumulate in BM of aging humans; 2) CXCR4 in B cells mediates their accumulation in the BM of aging mice by conditionally deleting CXCR4 in B cells; 3) TRAF3 expressed by MSCs regulates the accumulation of these B cells in BM by modulating SDF1 expression; 4) plerixafor (a CXCR4 inhibitor) prevents age-related osteoporosis by depleting RCBs from BM; 5) and if targeting plerixafor to bone by linking it to a bisphosphonate increases its efficacy and reduces its adverse effects.

    EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE REQUIRED

    The applicants must have a PhD, MD or MD/PhD degree, be highly motivated with a strong motivation to work independently with good writing and oral communication skills. Prior experience in musculoskeletal skeletal research, histomorphometry and flow cytometry is preferred, and in single cell and bulk RNA-seq would be a plus.

    Company Description 

    Ankasa Regenerative Therapeutics is a venture-backed biotech company based in the San Francisco Bay area that is developing novel protein-based stem cell activation therapies to improve tissue repair and regeneration. Stem cell renewal, maintenance and tissue regeneration are critical for normal health and well-being. Wnt pathway interactions are crucial to maintenance of these processes. Ankasa is the first to produce human Wnt proteins in a GMP manufacturing setting suitable for use in humans. 

    Our first clinical approach, under FDA regulation, is the demonstration of improved outcomes after spinal fusion surgeries. Our product has expansion opportunities to other bone reconstructive procedures including osseointegration of dental and orthopedic implants (knee and hip replacements), fracture repair, total joint arthroplasty revisions, and others. 

     Summary / Overall Purpose 

    We seek a highly motivated PhD level scientist with deep expertise in bone regeneration for a post- doctoral position at Ankasa Regenerative Therapeutics. The primary focus of the role will be the characterization of bone cells / grafts in vitro and in vivo following treatment with our lead regenerative agent. Successful candidates will implement robust, reproducible and cost effective protocols to monitor the viability and regenerative capacity of bone cells / grafts from human and animal bone following treatment, utilizing both in vitro and in vivo models of bone repair, while developing a broad based awareness of the requirements and complexities of the regulatory and commercialization processes for novel biologic and “device-like” therapeutics. 

     Essential/Primary Duties, Functions and Responsibilities 

    ▪ Independently design and implement robust, reproducible and cost-effective protocols for the isolation, culture, treatment and analysis of cells / grafts from human and animal bone with meticulous aseptic technique. 

    ▪ Design and implement in vivo studies investigating the regenerative capacity of implanted bone grafts in mice and/or rats (e.g., subrenal capsule implantation, fracture healing, spinal fusion, etc.). 

    ▪ Design and implement in vivo studies looking at the levels of bone regenerative agents detectable following in vivo delivery. 

    ▪ Utilize a battery of assay technologies to characterize bone cells / grafts and therapeutic product disposition, including ELISA, qPCR, flow cytometry, immunofluorescence microscopy and histology. 

    ▪ Independently identify and implement new assays and assay technologies that have an impact 

    Requirements 

    Work Experience: 

    Minimum 4 years laboratory experience as part of a PhD degree program specializing in bone biology/regeneration. 

    Management of Staff 

    Not required; however, ability to work well within a team environment is critical 

    Functional/Technical Knowledge and Skills 

    ▪ Isolation and culture of cells from human and animal bone 

    ▪ Isolation, manipulation and implantation of bone grafts (mice, rats) 

    ▪ Experience with a battery of analytical techniques including qPCR, ELISA, immunofluorescence microscopy, immunohistochemistry and histology 

    Education/Training 

    PhD in biology, biomedical engineering, biochemistry, molecular biology, or closely related field, with specific training in bone biology / regeneration 

    Licenses/Certifications 

    None required 

    Other 

    Work independently on experimental design, execution, and analysis; however, position is well supported by leadership with strong mentoring track record and medical/scientific as well as technology specific expertise; backed by state-of-the-art JLABS infrastructure 

    Excellent verbal and written communication skills and track record of ability to effectively present scientific data 

    Detail oriented; proven track record of detailed, reproducible protocol generation that can be readily transferred to other scientists 

    Positive attitude 

    Keeps calm under pressure
