The Madala Lab is seeking a highly motivated and talented research assoicate to study fibrotic lung diseases using advanced biochemical methods, and pre-clinical animal models. The research themes of the lab are to understand novel mechanisms and druggable molecules involved in fibroblast activation, and fibrosis using a combination of biochemistry, immunology, molecular biology, flow cytometry, genomics, preclinical mouse models, and human tissue samples. The laboratory has identified several growth factors, cytokines, and transcription factors involved in fibrotic lung diseases.
