Highly motivated undergraduates who are considering going to graduate or medical school and are looking for extensive research experience should contact Dr. Glukhov for available positions. Undergrads without previous research experience are expected to commit for at least two semesters. Academic credit based research projects are available via Introductory Biology 152 Independent Project and Class MEDICINE 699 — INDEPENDENT STUDY. Paid research positions are available in the summer but typically offered to undergrads who have previous research experience in the lab.
The Glukhov lab provides interdisciplinary and integrated training in cardiac physiology with emphasis on cellular and molecular mechanisms of neurohormonal regulation of heart function, the pathogenesis of heart diseases and arrhythmogenesis. Since faculty appointment at UW-Madison in 2015, Dr. Glukhov has mentored twenty-five undergraduate students. Of those, 14 are women, and 2 are from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in science. The Glukhov Lab is committed to not only supporting and mentoring a diverse group of scientists, but also fostering an environment and climate within the group that is inclusive and supportive to all.
Dr. Glukhov’s trainees received multiple awards and recognitions, including poster competition winning prizes, Hilldale-Holstrom Undergraduate Student Fellowships, Goldwater Undergraduate Student Scholarship, Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowships from the American Heart Association and UW-Madison Cardiovascular Research Center, and others. Undergrads have an opportunity to present their research findings at local, national and international conferences and be included as a co-author in research publications. A list of current and former trainees could be found at former lab members page.
- Graduate Students
The Department of Medicine does not offer its own degree. If you are a prospective graduate student interested in the Glukhov Lab, please make sure to apply to any of the graduate programs listed below where Dr. Glukhov serves as a program trainer. Feel free to contact Dr. Glukhov if you are interested in a rotation. Learn more about the accomplishments of past graduate students in the Glukhov Lab.
The CMP Program offers interdisciplinary and integrated training in the pathogenesis of human diseases with emphasis on molecular, cellular and biochemical approaches. The Glukhov Lab research is specifically focused on signal transduction in the pathogenesis of human diseases. Dr. Glukhov is a trainer on the CMP Program and involved in several graduate level courses, including CRB/BME 670 — BIOLOGY OF HEART DISEASE AND REGENERATION, and PHMCOL-M 781 — MOLECULAR AND CELLULAR PRINCIPLES IN PHARMACOLOGY. The MCP Program is supported by an NIH T32 training grant which could provide training grants for perspective students. The application deadline is December 1.
The CMB Program offers graduate education in the fields of cell biology and molecular biology. Coursework and research experience allow students to obtain a solid foundation in Cellular and Molecular Biology that is tailored to the professional objectives of each student. Dr. Glukhov is a trainer on the CMB Program. Program benefits include a competitive stipend, tuition coverage, comprehensive health benefits, and an excellent cost of living. The application deadline is December 1.
Graduate students in the Glukhov Lab could also apply for predoctoral training grants provided by the Cardiovascular Research Center (CVRC) NIH T32 Training Program in Translational Cardiovascular Science, and by the Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center Training Program. Dr. Glukhov is a trainer on both programs and also serves as a Chair of the Ion Channels/Arrhythmias monthly colloquium organized by the CVRC.
- Medical students
The Glukhov Lab offers an opportunity for UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH) to undertake full-time summer research projects supported by the Shapiro Summer Research Program as an integral part of the medical training and student future careers. Projects are available in areas of basic science (cardiac electrophysiology, arrhythmogenesis, cellular and molecular mechanisms of cardiac diseases, etc.) and translational research (in collaboration with cardiovascular medicine division clinical practitioners). SMPH students who have completed their first year of medical school and are in good academic standing are eligible for the program. For more details regarding the available projects, please contact Dr. Glukhov.
Dr. Glukhov is also a co-director (together with Dr. Zachary Goldberger) of a newly developed 2-credit Basic Science Selective MEDICINE 880 course “The Body Electric: intersection of cellular electrophysiology with clinical electrocardiography”. The course provides a deep exploration into the fundamental mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmia, from the perspective of basic electrophysiology and the clinical ECG correlates. MEDICINE 880 is designed for third- and fourth-year medical students as a part of Phase 3 of the Forward Curriculum allowing students to reinforce and build on important foundational science concepts taught in Phase 1 and 2 and translate basic science to clinical practice. The course cements clinical ECG understanding with basic foundation that is highly relevant for all physicians and providers. It provides lectures on basic electrophysiology and clinical electrocardiography, assigned readings, case review, assigned presentations, labs, and clinical time, and will help to produce the next generation of scientists and physicians.
The Glukhov Lab seeks for a talented and highly motivated postdoctoral fellow with an expertise in ion channel biophysics (patch clamp) and/or optical mapping of cardiac electrophysiology. Feel free to contact Dr. Glukhov if you are interested in this position.
