To assist in performing experiments, acquiring and analyzing data in a cardiovascular research laboratory. Trainee will have the opportunity to interact with established cardiovascular surgeons, scientists, research fellows and graduate and undergraduate students. The trainee will work on projects involving understanding the vascular mechanisms of hypertension and coronary artery disease, with emphasis on vascular disease in women such as preeclampsia and postmenopausal hypertension, and inflammatory vascular disease such as varicose veins and abdominal aortic aneurysm. The trainee will use state-of-the-art techniques in physiology, imaging microscopy, biochemistry and molecular biology to measure vital parameters as well as the expression/amount/activity of vascular signaling molecules in discarded human vessels and in animal models of vascular diseases, isolated blood vessels and microvessels, and cultured vascular cells. This is an unpaid opportunity.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
