The Deb lab is an interdisciplinary laboratory focused on the biology of cardiac wound healing. The lab uses a variety of genetic lineage tracing, and genetic and pharmacologic loss and gain of function approaches to understand how the heart heals following a heart attack. The lab studies the role of the extracellular matrix and cell-matrix cross talk in regulating wound healing. Another interest of the lab is to model genetic diseases in the dish using human pluripotent stem cells. Candidates interested in rotating or joining the lab would get wide exposure to animal physiology, human stem cell biology and disease in a dish modeling, extracellular matrix biology and understanding the role of metabolism in wound healing.
