Alice Heicklen
Senior Lecturer

Post Doctorate/Instructor- The Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Sept. 2000-2004, NIH Cardiovascular fellowship /American Heart Association Scientific Development Fellowship. Aberrant heart development and maintenance are major causes of miscarriages and heart failure. I have created Zebrafish lines using GATA-4 and GATA-6 regulatory regions to reveal in real time the role of these GATA factors in heart development and disease.
