Appointments and duration vary depending on the length of the research project and availability of funding. Research topics include but not limited to heart disease, mouse models of heart disease, gene expression analyses, cardiomyocyte cell cycle regulation, cardiac regeneration, whole genome expression analyses, including single cell preparation and analyses.
