Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Epithelial Biology

Laboratory of Epithelial Biology, Inflammation and Angiogenesis

We have recently identified a novel critical regulator of epithelial differentiation in the kidney that is required for proper nephron development. By utilizing new conditional mutant mice we are investigating the specific spatiotemporal roles of this epithelial regulator for kidney functions. This project aims to elucidate the molecular mechanisms through which this regulator controls critical functions in the kidney during development and in the adult.
Our laboratory utilizes diverse experimental techniques and has long-standing expertise in mouse genetics, molecular biology, and imaging techniques. We are embedded within a highly interactive excellent research environment at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

Our research projects involve epithelial biology, wound healing, angiogenesis and inflammation. This allows exposure to diverse but overlapping areas of research. Much of our work has clinical and translational relevance.
