Dr. Gregorio’s NIH-funded research incorporates molecular, cellular and physiological approaches on the RNA/protein level to identify molecular mechanisms that underlie contractile protein function in heart and skeletal muscle diseases. Current studies focus on the role of RNA-binding proteins in muscle function that are altered during normal development and in disease such as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The laboratory generates, analyzes, and integrates high-throughput fluorescence imaging, molecular biology and biochemistry to determine the mechanism of RNA binding proteins in cells (e.g., iPSCs, primary myocytes) and animal models that reflect patho/physiological states. The successful Postdoctoral candidate will possess a cell/molecular skill set with an emphasis on RNA biology appropriate to accomplish the lab’s goals. In ition, they will possess the drive required to research complex disease and will be able to work independently as well as collaboratively. The Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, the Sarver Heart Center, and the Bio5 Institute are dedicated to training the next generation of scientists, and the Postdoctoral candidate will benefit from the diverse and interdisciplinary environment at the University of Arizona. Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, vision, and life insurance; paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; access to UA recreation and cultural activities; and more! The University of Arizona has been recognized for our innovative work- life programs. For more information about working at the University of Arizona and relocations services, please click here.
