Postdoctoral and staff position available immediately in the Angiogenesis & Brain Development Laboratory at Huntington Medical Research Institutes (HMRI), Pasadena, CA to investigate novel mechanisms in CNS angiogenesis from developmental and disease perspectives. Three key projects are available for study: 1) to explore how Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (hiPSCs) can be used in endothelial cell therapy, for repair and regeneration in the diseased brain; 2) to study the fundamental mechanisms underlying cell-autonomous programs that regulate endothelial cell development in the forebrain and, 3) to selectively impair endothelial cell development and study the consequences on brain development, blood flow and behavior.
