Megason Laboratory at Harvard Medical School
A postdoctoral research fellow position is available in the Megason lab in the Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School in the areas of embryology, genetics, imaging, and systems biology. The Megason Lab has initiated a project to generate a Digital Fish which is a computer recreation of how the genome is executed to turn an egg into an embryo. We combine novel imaging technologies called in toto imaging to extract quantitative molecular and cellular data from living, developing zebrafish embryos for use in modeling. In toto imaging uses confocal and 2-photon microscopy to image and track every cell in developmental processes to reconstruct complete digital cell lineages. We also are developing a novel genetic approach called FlipTraps which generate endogenously expressed fluorescent fusion proteins and Cre condtional alleles. We combine these approaches to generate quantitative models of how systems of molecules program cells and systems of cells program tissues. Additionally, we are particularly interested in applicants with experience, expertise, and interest in home built 2-photon microscopy systems. For more information please contact Sean Megason (megason@hms.harvard.edu) or visit our website www.digitalfish.org.

Liao Lab at Brigham and Women’s Hospital
My research interests are focused on signaling pathways that govern vascular function, in both normal and diseased states. My laboratory attempts to translate basic findings in the vascular wall to therapeutic applications in patients with cardiovascular disease. We have characterized the function of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) with regards to its regulation by G-proteins, lipoproteins, and HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins). This has led to our discovery of eNOS upregulation by statins via the Rho/Rho kinase (ROCK) and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/protein kinase B (Akt) pathway. Consequently, my laboratory coined the term, “pleiotropic” effects of statins, to help recognize and emphasize the clinical importance of non-cholesterol mechanisms of statins on endothelial function and in stroke protection. In addition, my laboratory is interested in the role of Rac1 and Notch1 in angiogenesis and was the first to delineated a rapid “nongenomic” effect of steroid hormone through cross-coupling to the PI3K/Akt pathway. Presently, my laboratory is studying the pathophysiological role of ROCK signaling in cardiovascular, neurological, and metabolic diseases using conditional ROCK1 and ROCK2 KO mice that have been developed in my laboratory. In addition, My laboratory is interested in role of Cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2J2 and epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs) in regulating cardiovascular function and am currently engaged in national and international efforts in studying the expression and activities of ROCKs and CYP2J2 in patients with cardiovascular risk factors and disease.
