Welcome to Greif Lab

My laboratory investigates blood vessel morphogenesis, the maintenance of the adult blood vessel and diseases of the vasculature. To this end, we utilize fundamental biochemical, state-of-the-art genetic and developmental biological approaches.

Postdoctoral position available – The ideal candidate will have a solid background in developmental biology and genetic approaches (including prior work with genetically engineered mice), confocal microscopy and a strong interest in vascular and/or lung biology.  Candidates must hold a recent PhD or MD or MD/PhD degree (or anticipating such a degree prior to starting the postdoc), have prior publications and be extremely hardworking and motivated to pursue top-notch scientific investigation.  Fluency in English is required.  Please send a CV, statement of research interests and names and contact information of three references to: daniel.greif@yale.edu


Current Projects:

  • Aortic wall development and disease: specification, migration and differentiation.
  • Mural cells in blood brain barrier formation: implication for intracerebral hemorrhage.
  • Excess smooth muscle in pulmonary hypertension: cellular origins and recruitment and the role of pluripotency factors.
  • Alveolar myofibroblasts in development and disease.
