One of the most amazing biological processes is embryonic development. My laboratory is interested in how one particular signaling pathway, called Wnt, controls the development of the embryo in general and the heart in particular. For this, we use mouse and frog embryos and cell lines.

We are looking for a responsible, highly motivated and bright student to participate in this project. The student would also assist in other lab functions, including buffer preparation and autoclaving. Students should be available for a minimum of two semesters. Laboratory experience in molecular/cell biology is helpful. If you are interested, please send an email to isdoming@bu.edu and include your resume and your daily schedule.
