Additional responsibilities may also include coordinating research meetings, assisting with rodent post-operative pain management, as well as conducting histopathology, microscopy, or biochemical assays. Prior experience with histopathology and microscopy is desired, but not required, as we are able to train these skills for new staff.

The centering question for his laboratory is how does the degeneration of the articular joint lead to joint pain and disability. The laboratory employs multiple scientists with broad expertise across medical research; thus, applicants must be able and willing to collaborate with other lab members with a broad range of scientific expertise. The primary role for the lab manager is to coordinate sample transfer and documentation between different scientific teams.
