Department/Area: Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology
The Fishman lab in the Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology at Harvard University, in collaboration with the Engert Lab in MCB of Harvard, is launching a program to define in zebrafish the function of heart-brain neural connectivity. The goal is a full definition of: what sensory nerves measure within the heart and vasculature; how they connect to central nervous system centers; and how such information is integrated and used to control cardiovascular function. The technical approaches includes single cell transcriptomics, electrophysiology and optogenetics, and electron microscopy.
Ph.D. or M.D. scientists with a strong relevant background including, for example, model organism genetics (knockouts and transgenesis), zebrafish biology, electrophysiology, transcriptional and epigenetic analysis, and/or cardiovascular function.
