Profile

The research interests of my laboratory focus on neural mechanisms involved in cardiovascular diseases and chronic stress.  Identifying cellular and synaptic mechanisms involved in cardiovascular diseases and chronic stress-related neurological disorders are critical for developing novel therapeutics to treat these diseases.  The ongoing projects in the lab are to explore the role of neuroendocrine dysfunction in hypertension and other brain disorders. We use multiple experimental approaches including electrophysiology, molecular biology, and transgenics in the research projects.

REP Postdoc Opportunity

This is a postdoctoral fellow position in the lab of Dr. De-Pei Li in the Department of Medicine, Center for Precision Medicine. Dr. Li’s research focus is neural mechanisms involved in cardiovascular diseases and chronic stress. Identifying cellular and synaptic mechanisms involved in cardiovascular diseases and chronic stress-related neurological disorders are critical for developing novel therapeutics to treat these diseases. The ongoing projects in the lab are to explore the role of neuroendocrine dysfunction in hypertension and other brain disorders. Dr. Li and his team use multiple experimental approaches including electrophysiology, molecular biology, and transgenics in the research projects. The postdoctoral fellow on Dr. Li’s team will actively contribute to the ongoing research activities in the lab involving neural mechanisms underlying chronic stress-induced hypertension. Examples of research responsibilities include electrophysiological recording in brain slices, performing stress procedures, immunostaining, and behavioral testing. The postdoctoral fellow in this position will gain hands on experience in lab safety, research procedures, and the administrative aspects of research.
