The laboratory of Dr. Junseok Son in the Department of Obstetrics,
Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at University of Maryland
School of Medicine is seeking a postdoctoral research fellow to
investigate molecular mechanisms in response to exercise during
pregnancy using transgenic mouse models.
The research will focus on:
1) Uncovering the molecular mechanisms underlying maternal impacts
on placental development and function, focusing on hypoxia and
2) Exploring epigenetic regulation of fetal brown fat and muscle
development due to maternal exercise during pregnancy
3) Testing our novel discoveries for developing therapeutic
intervention of pregnant women
