Postdoctoral Fellowship in Cardiac Gene Therapy Research at Stanford University
There is an open, postdoctoral position at Stanford University in the laboratory of Michael S. Kapiloff, MD, PhD, the Reinhard Family Professor and member of the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute. The Kapiloff lab is interested in how pathological cardiac remodeling is regulated by signal transduction pathways and multimolecular protein complexes. Basic research concepts studied in the laboratory are being applied to the development of novel gene therapy vectors for the treatment of heart failure. We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated cardiac physiologist with an interest in gene therapy who would participate in a project co-mentored by Dr. Mark Mercola addressing mechanisms and therapeutics for Dilated Cardiomyopathy. Appropriate candidates will have prior experience in small rodent cardiac research, including echocardiography.
