This laboratory is currently involved in a multicenter, NIH -funded effort to generate and characterize large numbers of human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines with the goal of understanding the genetic networks underlying insulin resistance signaling. iPSC lines will be differentiated into tissue types of interest (specifically adipose, skeletal muscle, endothelial cells) and characterized using a variety of in vitro assays coupled with high throughput genetic sequencing ( RNA -Seq). In particular, interest is focused on gene networks/pathways that may be influencing vascular biology and ultimately influence cardiovascular risk. The ideal candidate has an MD or PhD degree and direct experience in working with embryonic stem cells or induced pluripotent stem cells. Experience in vascular biology is highly desirable.
The Division of Cardiovascular Medicine and the Stanford University School of Medicine provide superlative training opportunities at the post-doctoral level in the very latest and most sophisticated methods and approaches for investigating genetic mechanisms of complex human disease
