Fully funded research position in organ regeneration at Vanderbilt University (2 years) Dear Colleagues, I am writing to inform you of a fully funded two-year research position open for this upcoming academic year (July 2021) at Vanderbilt University Med Center (VUMC). We are seeking a highly talented and motivated surgical resident to join the Laboratory for Organ Recovery, Regeneration and Replacement. Our team focuses on developing the next generation of extracorporeal support technologies and whole organ bioengineering for lung and liver regeneration, including translational models for transplantation. The lab also has NIH funded research in artificial lung development in an ovine model with a translational goal of developing an ambulatory pulmonary assist device. This research position involves porcine and ovine surgery as well as the regeneration of rejected human organs using a xenogeneic model of organ support. The position is based at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in the Department of Surgical Sciences with collaborative work with researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and Columbia University. Previous surgical residents have been instrumental to this group and have been extremely productive, successful academically and gone on to secure highly coveted clinical fellowships. Their work has been published in Nature Medicine, Nature Communications, Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation and more.
