Defining the miR network regulating Cardiac Stem Cell fate Decisions for its Potential Therapeutic Use

Please note that the job is no longer active!

To gain maximum benefit from the cardiac stem cells (CSCs), it is also required to obtain a better understanding of the genetic cascade responsible for CSC self-renewal and its maintenance together with the sequence and regulation of changes in gene expression down the slope of progressive fate restriction and their maturation into fully functional cardiomyocytes. One of the key breakthroughs in gene expression regulation has been the recent discovery of microRNAs (miRNAs) and their role in gene silencing. Recently, specific microRNAs which determine stem cell fate have been identified for embryonic stem cells and a number of different adult stem cell lineages, however such information is not yet available for CSCs. To gain insight into this gap of molecular knowledge, we will obtain mouse CSC clones and will analyze the latter clones at different stages from primitive cells to differentiated progeny.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
