Con­tact Name: Rong Tian

Con­tact Email: rongtian[at]

Depart­ment: Anesthesiology, Bioengineering, Biochemistry


We are looking for students to work with mouse models of altered mitochondrial function and/or cell metabolism to investigate disease mechanisms.  The student will be involved in treatment of mouse models, monitoring physiological function of multiple organ systems, and biochemical analysis of tissue samples.  Molecular and genetics analysis will be included in the later stage of the project.


Comfortable to work with animals.
General knowledge of biology, biochemistry and physiology.
A minimum of 10 hours per week needed.
