Molecular regulation of heart failure
Cardiovascular Biology and Cardiovascular Diseases
Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares "Carlos III" (CNIC)
DESCRIPTION OF THE OFFER
Our lab studies the molecular mechanisms that regulate heart diseases. We have a main interest in molecular mechanisms of inherited cardiomyopathies and mechanisms of heart failure.
We offer a position to study the mechanisms underlying dilated cardiomyopathy developed as a consequence of a mutation in the Flnc gene. We will use mouse models and iPSCs to identify those mechanisms. The student will participate in the characterisation of the mouse and/or iPSC line, already generated in our lab. The student will familiarise themselves with echocardiography, ECG, histology and several molecular biology techniques.
