Investigation of transdifferentiation of macrophages following cardiac injury in adult zebrafish


Project Description

This project will investigate unexpected gene expression in cardiac macrophages that suggests these cells may undergo transdifferentiation during repair and regeneration of the heart. Cell-type specific CRISPR knockout of these genes and cutting-edge structural analysis using cryo EM will facilitate the investigation of the function of these genes in cardiac macrophages.
