Uncovering mechanisms of cardiopulmonary development and disease

The Frank research laboratory is composed of individuals performing basic science and translational research to assess the generation and regeneration of cardiopulmonary tissue. As such, we strive to identify, understand, and manipulate the progenitor cells that orchestrate interactions during vascular and lung development and regeneration.

We are seeking multidisciplinary and motivated persons interested in developmental biology, tissue regeneration, novel technologies, and ex vivo modeling of development and disease. Enjoying scientific discovery and having fun along the way is encouraged!
