Two on-going projects funded by AHA and ADA are focus on exploring the receptor-mediated, Ang II-dependent and Ang II-independent effect of prorenin in the development of cardiac and renal fibrosis by using inducible transgenic rats.
Volunteer; Prepare a UROP proposal; Write an Honors Thesis
We are looking for students who are interested in medicine and medical research to take care of transgenic rats including breeding, gene typing, scanning the rat quality.
We will pay for student's work hourly.
I prefer the students to work in our lab for one to three years.
Students have taken the biology, chemistry, biochemistry or physiology classes. It will be even better if the students have some lab experience.
