Project details
Our lab studies neural circuitry and signaling mechanisms in cardiovascular (heart failure, cardiomyopathy) and neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimers disease, ALS). We utilize multidisciplinary and state-of-the art approaches such as radiotelemetry, echocardiography, optogenetics, electrophysiology, microdialysis, in vivo viral gene transfer, molecular biology, Cre-loxP, neuroanatomy etc. to assess cardiovascular/autonomic functions, diurnal rhythms, behavioral neuroscience and neural circuitry in genetically modified mice.

We are seeking highly motivated individuals who are interested in becoming involved in ongoing research projects. Responsibilities will vary but may include animal husbandry, maintaining mouse colonies, general lab maintenance, tissue harvesting/sectioning, histology, Western blots, DNA/RNA extraction, qPCR, stereotaxic surgeries, pellets/minipump implant surgeries, executing protocols in conscious mice, behavioral assays and data analyses. Opportunites to perform radiotelemetry, optogenetics, microdialysis, viral gene transfer and electrophysiology are available depending on skill level. This position will be particularly beneficial to students who are planning to enter graduate programs in molecular medicine, neuroscience or related fields.


Highly motivated, reliable, and diligent students who are eager to develop and hone their research skills.
