Summary Description

Columbia University’s Department of Genetics & Development at the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons invites applicants for Postdoctoral Research Scientist position.

The goal of the laboratory is to demonstrate through state-of-the-art genetic, molecular and physiological approaches that many pathways regulating the most classical physiological functions in mammals remain to be discovered. A further goal of the laboratory is to show that harnessing these novel regulatory pathways may help treating degenerative diseases caused by the disruption of a given physiological process.

Our studies use bone as a model organ and focus largely on osteocalcin, a hormone regulating an unusually large number of physiological processes.

Current projects in the laboratory include but are not limited to:

• The description of novel functions of osteocalcin.
• The elucidation of it signaling pathway in various organs.
• The general evaluation of the maternal influence on physiology in the offspring.
• The extension of this work to the treatment of degenerative diseases.
• The exploration of novel pathways underlying metastases to bone of various cancers.
