Postdoctoral Fellowship to Investigate the Molecular Biology of MAGEL2 in Schaaf-Yang and Prader-Willi Syndromes

Funded Year: 2023

Studies using cell and animal models are needed to better understand the normal function of MAGEL2 and how mutations or loss of the protein underlies both the PWS and SYS phenotypes. This funded project will support a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Christian Schaaf’s lab to investigate the molecular biology of MAGEL2 in both PWS and SYS. This will...
