The Unit on Vascular Malformations focuses on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms that perturb vascular development in humans to develop molecularly targeted therapies. To accomplish this, we use genomics, organoids, and the zebrafish as an animal model. We recently demonstrated that pathogenic mosaic activating variants in KRAS cause CCLA which respond to MEK inhibition in both organoid and zebrafish models. The lab’s current interests include the application of long-read genome sequencing to patients without a known molecular etiology, investigation of candidate genes for CCLA, and therapeutic development for genes previously identified to cause CCLA (especially those within the RAS-MAPK pathway).

The position is open to individuals with an MD or PhD degree and less than 5 years of postdoctoral experience. Appointees may be US citizens, resident aliens, or non-resident aliens with or eligible to obtain a valid employment-authorized visa. Salary is commensurate with education and experience.
