A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Sophie Astrof at Thomas Jefferson University to study roles of cell-extracellular matrix (ECM) interactions in cardiovascular development and congenital heart disease. We have recently discovered that progenitors within the second heart field (SHF) give rise to endothelial cells composing pharyngeal arch arteries. Projects in the lab focus on the role of ECM in regulating the development of SHF-derived progenitors into endothelial cel…
