Brief Description about the Project:

  • The project is to understand the prevalence of monogenic causes of nephrotic syndrome in Indian population. This involves screening of nephrotic patients for various known gene mutations and functional validation of the identified mutations. This study would include patient screening and sample processing, various molecular and cellular techniques (PCR, sequencing, NGS, qPCR, cell culture, FACT, etc.) as well as bioinformatic analysis of the molecular data. Such study will allow us to understand the role of genetic mutations in nephrotic syndrome development.

Core Responsibilities:

  • Independently perform and plan research experiments
  • Developing pipelines for various NGS applications or cell biology experiment

Key Skills:

  • Research experience in bioinformatic analysis and/or cell biology techniques such as tissue culture, sequencing, ELISA, Western blot, etc. is essential

Specific Activities:

  • Performing NGS-based experiments and its bioinformatic analysis
  • Active involvement in the ongoing project work
  • Handling tissue culture-related projects
