Biography:
My laboratory studies the mechanisms through which the vitamin A metabolite retinoic acid controls embryonic development and stem cell differentiation. By determining how retinoic acid normally functions as a central regulator of organogenesis, our research helps reveal the regulatory logic that drives stem cell differentiation and provides a basis to guide efforts in stem cell manipulations designed to treat human disease or aging through a regenerative medicine approach.

Postdoctoral Position in Signaling Mechanisms during Organogenesis at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, La Jolla, California

Posted by on June 20th, 2017

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available to investigate the signaling functions of retinoic acid (RA) during mouse embryo development. Our laboratory has reviewed recent advances in this field: Cunningham, T.J. and Duester, G. Mechanisms of retinoic acid signalling and its roles in organ and limb development. Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology 16: 110-123 (2015).  […]
