The laboratory of Prof. Christopher Antos is seeking applications from qualified applicants for the positions of Research Assistant Professor/Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Dr. Antos and his laboratory colleagues are interested in understanding the how human heart and limbs can be induced to regenerate. The Antos Laboratory researches how the zebrafish regenerates its heart and its appendages. Because the zebrafish and human have significant similarities in gene expression and cell biology, researching how this fish regenerates its heart and its appendages should lead to a better understanding on how to induce regeneration in human heart and limb tissues.
