Dr. Jin He’s lab has a strong background in epigenetics and developmental biology. Recently our team established multiple ASD mouse models induced by mutations of top ASD risk epigenetic genes identified in patients (https://bmb.natsci.msu.edu/directory-pages/faculty/jin-he/current-research.aspx; https://bmb.natsci.msu.edu/directory-pages/faculty/jin-he/recent-publications.aspx ). With these new mouse models, we are dedicated to understanding the underlying epigenetic mechanisms that contribute to ASD pathogenesis. As a postdoctoral researcher, you will have this great opportunity to work with us and make groundbreaking discoveries. In addition to conducting cutting-edge research, you will have the opportunity to present your findings at national and international conferences, collaborate with other scientists, and contribute to the development of new research programs. Dr. Jin He is committed to supporting the professional development of postdoctoral researchers and providing a collaborative and supportive environment that encourages learning and growth.
