Postdoc and research associate positions in cardiovascular development

Posted by on October 15th, 2014

The Wythe Lab at Baylor College of Medicine favors a cross disciplinary approach to solving key problems in cardiovascular development. Rather than wed ourselves to a singular model system or technique, we attack biological questions from multiple fronts, using gold standard genetic models-such as the mouse, cutting edge imaging techniques, genome-wide analyses, and classical biochemistry.[…]
