Cornell University, located in Ithaca,
New York, is an inclusive, dynamic, and
innovative Ivy League university and New
York's and-grant institution. Its staff, faculty,
and students impart an
of larger purpose and contribute creative
ideas and best practices to further the
university's mission of teaching,
research, and outreach.
The Department of and
Genetics seeks a
associate to study the role of the newly
discovered retrovirus XMRV in chronic
syndrome (CFS). Blood from a cohort of
CFS patients and controls in upstate
New York will be examined for the presence
of virus, viral proteins, and antibodies to
viral proteins. Sequences of XMRV from
different patients will be obtained in order
to characterize the diversity of viruses in
the population. Whether virus sequences
correlate with functional status of CFS
patients will be determined. This project
will be undertaken in collaboration with the
Whittemore-Peterson Institute in Columbia University Center and the
for Infection and Immunity as well as with
several physicians treating CFS patients.
