Open Positions

Graduate Students

New position to use an innovative fluorescence based approach to quantify binding interactions between cadherins and growth factor receptors. Studies will establish the role of the receptor interactions in mechano-transduction, cardiovascular functions, and tissue morphogenesis.

New position to develop an innovative fluorescence based approach to quantify the impact of local interfacial environments on protein folding stability and function in hybrid biomaterials.

New position to test how N-cadherin regulates VEGF expression to promote angiogenesis and tissue vasularization (with HJ Kong)

Post Docs

New position to develop an innovative fluorescence based approach to quantify binding affinities between cadherins and growth factor receptors at the plasma membrane. Studies with organoid cultures  will test how disrupting cadherin/EGFR interactions impinges on tissue functions.
