The laboratories of Dr. Marlene Rabinovitch, Professor of Pediatrics (Cardiology) and Dr. Mark Skylar-Scott , Assistant Professor in Bioengineering 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, to work on a major project to bioprint a functioning human heart from stem cells. The successful applicant will be immersed in cutting-edge vascular cell and molecular biology, bioprinting, tissue engineering, and imaging technologies applied to human vascular cells to create free standing blood vessels from stem cells that can be used for high throughput testing and bioprinted functioning vessels embedded in heart tissue in conjunction with a major 5 year-14 investigator team dedicated to the ARPA-H HEART project.
This project offers co-mentoring in Cell Biology and Bioengineering.
