Hsiao Lab - UCSF
Our lab is interested in understanding how hormonal and genetic factors regulate skeletal formation. We use a combination of advanced approaches, including synthetic/engineered G-protein coupled receptors, human induced pluripotent stem cells, mouse models, and genomics. Our long-term goals are to develop new models of human skeletal disease pathology, elucidate interactions between GPCRs and other key skeletal pathways, and devise novel therapeutic approaches for treating congenital skeletal disorders and bone injuries.
Our lab is centrally located on the UCSF Parnassus campus in the Institute for Human Genetics and in the UCSF Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, which is ranked #4 in the United States and #1 in California by the 2011 US News and World Report. We work closely with innovative collaborators in the UCSF Stem Cell program, Diabetes Center, Craniofacial and Mesenchymal Biology (CMB), Radiology, and Biomedical Sciences (BMS) programs. More information about our lab and recent publications is available on this website (http://bms.ucsf.edu/directory/faculty/edward-hsiao-md-phd and http://bit.ly/hsiaolab).
Although we currently do not have any open positions, things can change quickly. Please feel free to send a PDF of your CV and publication list, a brief (half page) statement of research and long-term career directions, and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Edward Hsiao (Edward.hsiao at ucsf.edu). Applications will be considered on a rolling basis depending on lab space, funding availibiity ,and applicant qualifications.
