Laboratory Technician III (S)
To provide research support for bioinformatics data analysis on research conducted within the Center for Pediatric Biomedical Research. The analyses of results achieved from this position will be utilized to better understand the function of macrophages and erythroid cells, and of the hematopoietic system in general, as these cells function during steady state and disease. These analyses also will serve as an invaluable tool in the publication of papers in scientific journals and submission of grant proposals.
