The Naba lab in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics studies the role of the extracellular matrix (ECM) in development, health, and disease, with a particular focus on cancer and fibrosis. The strength of our research program lies in combining classical molecular, cellular, and developmental biology approaches with cutting-edge proteomics and computational analyses.
Our goal is to better understand how the ECM contributes to diseases so that we can exploit it to develop novel prognostic, diagnostic, and therapeutic strategies. You can find more about our research at: https://sites.google.com/a/uic.edu/nabalab.
Our lab is a highly collaborative and dynamic group that strives for scientific excellence and offers a stimulating and inclusive working environment conducive to learning and professional development.
We are seeking to fill multiple NIH-funded positions. The list of open positions and application guidelines are attached and can also be found at: https://sites.google.com/a/uic.edu/nabalab/join-us.
