The Knowles laboratory employs genetic and genomic methods to study the molecular mechanisms that mediate cardiovascular disease risk and pathophysiology, especially insulin resistance. For genes identified through whole genome studies, we use “dry” and “wet” bench approaches to identify mechanisms by which causal variation is responsible for altered gene structure or function and employ tissue culture and genetic mouse models to identify how encoded factors participate in the disease process. The goal is translation of these findings to the clinic.
Postdoctoral fellows are sought with experience in molecular biology and/or human genetics, as well as in vitro and in vivo models of metabolic disease. Computational analyses of genetic and genomic data is a plus. The lab is funded by the NIH, AHA, ADA and other organizations. The Division of Cardiovascular Medicine and the Stanford University School of Medicine provide superlative training opportunities at the post-doctoral level in a highly stimulating and interactive environment.
