Postdoctoral Position in Cardiac Development and Regeneration

Posted by on March 23rd, 2019

We are seeking a creative and exceptionally motivated candidate to fill a post-doctoral position in the field of cardiac development and regeneration. Research in the Radice lab investigates the molecular mechanisms regulating how heart muscle cells sense and respond to mechanical force.  Our lab discovered that N-cadherin/catenin cell adhesion complex together with the underlying cytoskeleton[…]

Uncovering Non-canonical Roles of E-cadherin Beyond Cell Adhesion

Posted by on February 14th, 2017

Broad perspective Successful division was an essential criterion for establishing the cell as the basic unit of life on earth. Later, cell-cell adhesion made possible the evolution of multicellular life forms. These two fundamental cellular processes co-function throughout the life of an organism, during development, wound healing and tissue regeneration. In epithelial tissues this results[…]
