Postdoctoral Position to Study Mechanotransduction in the Heart

Posted by on August 23rd, 2019

The Radice laboratory in the Cardiovascular Research Center (CVRC) (http://cvrc.brownmedicine.org) at Rhode Island Hospital/Brown University is seeking a creative and exceptionally motivated postdoctoral researcher to investigate the mechanistic basis for how heart muscle cells sense and respond to mechanical force. Our current research emphasis is to identify how N-cadherin together with the underlying cytoskeleton transmits[…]

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[…]
