Dr. Shaad Ahmad, Indiana State University

"Genetic, Genomic and Computational Analyses of Heart Development in Drosophila."

Dr. Ahmad's lab uses integrated genetic, genomic, computational and molecular biology strategies to identify novel genes involved in Drosophila heart development, investigate their function and regulation, and examine the role of their orthologs in vertebrate and mammalian (including human) cardiogenesis. Our ultimate goal is to arrive at a comprehensive understanding of heart development which incorporates both a systems-level view of the underlying genetic network and detailed examinations of the roles of individual genes. We also use similar approaches to examine and dissect biological processes involved in the development of other organs. The lab is interested in recruiting motivated and dedicated SURE students who are interested in gaining experience in genetics, molecular biology and/or developmental biology.
