Postdoctoral Fellow Research Associate-Surgery-(17000060)
The major focus of our research projects is to determinethe mechanism for cardiac regeneration using different cell-based preparations,including exosomes, condition media, and the stem cells themselves and testingthese cell-based products in a variety of regenerative assays. In particular,we are determining how mIRs present in the exosomes derived from the stem cellsaffect the regenerative process to recover the injured myocardium. Severalanimal and cell model systems, including conditional gene knockouts, will beused in these research projects, and many state of the art techniques areavailable, such as real time PCR, CRISPR/Cas9 Genome Editing, confocal microscopy,real time imaging and advanced microscopy,multicolor flow and sorting, HPLC and mass spectrometry, and ultrasonicand telemetric measurements of cardiovascular function in rodents and largeanimals.
Applicants must have a PhD,MD/PhD or equivalent degree and proven skills and experience in molecularbiology.The University of Maryland School of Medicine has a group ofoutstanding scientists in cardiovascular research, especially in cardiovascularcell signaling, diabetes, endothelial biology, and pathogenesis ofatherosclerosis. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to work withthem and get help in developing an independent career in this research field.
