Cardiac development and regeneration laboratory postdoc scholar recruitment, Medical University of South Carolina

The Tao lab is dedicated to unveiling the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying myocardial homeostasis, injury, and repair. We are interested in understanding how developmental pathways are connected to adult heart regeneration after myocardial infarction (MI). MI often leads to degenerative muscle that gradually loses healthy cardiomyocytes and contractility. Currently, there is no cure to reverse the pathological progress. To repopulate the infarcted myocardium, one promising strategy is to reintroduce the terminally differentiated cardiomyocytes into cell cycle. In mouse, neonatal hearts can fully regenerate after MI, however this ability is gradually lost and gone by Postnatal day 7. Over the past 7 years, we and other groups have been trying to figure out what the young hearts have, and the adult hearts don’t. It turned out that certain molecular pathways are enriched in neonatal hearts and grant them regenerative abilities. The same pathways, when genetically modified, can improve cardiac repair in adult hearts. One such example is the Pitx2 signaling. In injured neonatal mouse heart, the Pitx2 gene is activated by the upstream redox sensor Nrf2. Nrf2 then facilitates the nuclei-shuttling of Pitx2 protein, which further couples with the Hippo signaling effector, Yap, to co-regulate downstream antioxidant scavengers (Tao et al., Nature 2016).

The projects in our lab typically start with unbiased screening using CRISPR technology and NGS. Once a target pathway has been identified, it will be validated in cell lines and tissue samples. Eventually, each hypothesis will be examined using an adult murine heart survival surgery model, where artificial MI is induced by occluding the left anterior descending coronary artery. The effect of gene manipulation on the scarring and recovering of the myocardium will be assessed by non-invasive echocardiography, histology, immunofluorescence, and biochemistry. Trainees in the Tao lab will have the opportunities to learn the key technologies and skills mentioned above. We welcome enthusiastic postdocs to join our lab.


• Candidates holding a PhD, MD or MD/PhD degree with training background in biology, life science or medical science;

• Basic communicating and writing skills; good with teamwork and collaboration;

• Bioinformatic, cardiovascular biology training experience is highly recommended.
