NIH PREDOCTORAL AND POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN MOLECULAR AND CELLULAR
ASPECTS OF BRAIN AGING 
Pre- and post-doctoral training positions are available immediately for
highly motivated individuals interested in applying modern techniques in
molecular and cellular biology to explore the processes of brain aging.
Training faculty at the University of Kentucky are a highly interactive
group of scientists dedicated to the investigation of the basic processes of
normal and pathological brain aging.  Preceptors areas of expertise are
diverse and include:  neurodegenerative diseases, molecular mechanisms of
plasticity, neuroimmune function in aging, molecular neuroendocrinology, and
molecular mechanisms of cell death.  Eligibility:  U.S. citizens or
permanent residents.  Training opportunities are available in the
laboratories of:
Rosemarie Booze:  Aging changes in plasticity and neurodegenerative disease
Steven Estus:  Molecular mechanisms underlying neuronal apoptosis
Don M. Gash:  Plasticity and regeneration in the aging brain
James W. Geddes:  Neuronal cytoskeleton and the neuropathology in AD
Marilyn L. Getchell:  Age-related changes in immune barrier function
Thomas V. Getchell:  Regulation of cell cycle events during ontogeny
James P. Herman:  Stress and the aging brain
Louis B. Hersh:  Choline acetyltransferase and aging
Mark S. Kindy:  Transgenic models of amyloid formation, Alzheimer's disease
                     and stroke
Philip W. Landfield:  Calcium channels and hormones in brain aging and
                     neurodegeneration
Mark P. Mattson:  Cellular signalling mechanisms in plasticity during aging
Joseph P. McGillis:  Neuroimmune system during aging
Douglas McMahon:  Ion channels and synaptic communication during aging
Daniel J. Noonan:  changes in the steroid receptor family
Bertram Peretz:  Mechanisms controlling the maintenance of neuron function
Thomas L. Roszman:  Mechanisms governing neural-immune interactions
Stephen L. Scheff:  Changes in neuronal circuitry with age
John T. Slevin:  Alzheimer's disease and aberrant neuronal plasticity
Thomas C. Vanaman:  Molecular biology of Ca2+ dependent proteins
Phyllis M. Wise:  Hormone regulation of aging
