SummaryWe are currently recruiting a highly motivated PhD-level scientist to elucidate the role of neuregulin-1/ErbB and BMP-9 signaling in the regulation of cardiac progenitor cells in cardiac repair after myocardial ischemic injury. Neuregulins (NRGs) belongs to the epidermal growth factor (EGF) superfamily of transmembrane growth factors. BMP-9 belongs to the Transforming Growth Factor-beta superfamily. These factors play an essential role in cardiac development and in the regulation of the adult cardiovascular system adaptation to physiological and pathological stress. We are looking for a qualified individual capable of combining skills in Molecular Biology, Immunology, Molecular Pharmacology and Biochemistry with the ability to work as a team and lead scientific projects in the field.
