The Clinical Neuroimmunology group at the Department of Biomedicine, University Hospital Basel, Switzerland, invites highly motivated scientists to apply for this position within a Translational Medicine project supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
The project addresses the need for novel biomarkers to improve the monitoring of treatment efficacy and prediction of long-term disease course in the frame of precision medicine, and to develop them for personalized medicine. Our group is leading in the development of nerurofilament light chain (NfL) as the first blood-based biomarker to measure therapeutic efficacy of drugs, and to predict future disability in multiple sclerosis (MS).
