Dr. John Talpos is the Director of the division of Neurotoxicology at the FDA’s National Center for Toxicology Research (NCTR). Dr. Talpos is seeking a post-doctoral researcher with an interest in developmental neurotoxicity. The research fellow will participate in FDA funded research to evaluate the developmental toxicity of analgesia and anesthesia. The focus of these projects is determining the neurotoxic potential of analgesia or anesthesia exposure in utero and during the first year of life. These projects will be performed in rats and guinea pigs and focus on histological, immuno-histological, and molecular endpoints of neurotoxicity. The researcher is also expected to interact with researchers who are focusing on secondary endpoints related to liver function and sexual development. The division of Neurotoxicology has a wide array of experimental tests and models allowing exposure to a variety of research methods and models as well as firsthand experience performing regulatory research.
