The Gumienny lab is interested in understanding how environment, extracellular factors, and other signaling pathways regulate the DBL-1/TGFβ pathway’s control of normal body size. Understanding how TGFβ signaling is regulated has implications for human cancer and fibrosis, and for overgrowth disorders like Marfan syndrome. The nematode C. elegans is an ideal experimental model for these studies as it permits the genetic analysis and visualization of signaling pathways in vivo. We routinely use genetic, molecular, cellular, and confocal and light microscopy techniques.
Interested candidates should be highly motivated, have a Ph.D. or equivalent with a record of experience in genetics, molecular biology, and/or cell biology in a model organism, and should have good communication (written and verbal), interpersonal, and organizational skills.
