The laboratory of Dr. Vinicio de Jesus Perez is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral candidate to join its pulmonary vascular research program. The laboratory is located in new state-of-the-art facilities at Stanford Research Park at 1701 Page Mill Road. The laboratory focuses on the genetic and molecular mechanisms that regulate endothelial and pericyte behavior in the context of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).  We are particularly interested in elucidating the role of the Wnt signaling pathways in orchestrating cell-cell interactions during angiogenesis and whether targeting Wnt-associated genes could serve as therapeutic targets for PAH.    We use well-established and cutting-edge approaches to address these questions including cell culture, Omics, bioinformatics, animal models, and advanced imaging techniques.   Besides the Stanford community, our group collaborates with other experts in the US and around the world who share their expertise in bioinformatics, genetics, physics, bioengineering, genetics, and vascular biology.  

The laboratory is mainly funded by three R01 grants from the NHLBI and several institutional awards. Current and former postdoctoral fellows have successfully transitioned to positions in academia and industry and received grants from the AHA, NIH, TRAM, NAVBO, and ATS.  

The de Jesus Perez Lab is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in biomedical research and encourages all to apply.
