The laboratory of Dr. Marlene Rabinovitch, Professor of Pediatrics (Cardiology) is seeking a highly motivated and accomplished postdoctoral scholar to join their team of investigators in conjunction with the Basic Science and Engineering (BASE) Initiative of the Children’s Heart Center at Stanford University.
A successful applicant will be immersed in cutting-edge molecular, sequencing, imaging and high throughput ‘omics’ technologies applied to human vascular and immune cells and in their application to mouse and rat models of human vascular disease with a focus on pulmonary arterial hypertension.   Our research interests relate to the impact of metabolic reprogramming on gene regulation and RNA translation, the impact of changes in shear stress and DNA damage on the epigenome, bioengineering blood vessels, immune and vascular cell interactions.  We incorporate transgenic models of disease, iPSC generated vascular and immune cells, gene editing, high-throughput drug testing, single cell RNA Sequencing and high dimensional single cell mapping of tissues.   Please consult our website for more details.
All our projects offer opportunities for co-mentoring in Genetics and Bioengineering.
