Work With Us


If you're interested in getting to know us, we hold an irregularly scheduled research conference Wednesdays at 4pm Pacific that we call "Friends of Let's Talk Science". Let us know of your interest and we can invite you to attend and/or present. This is a great way to get to know us and our scientific friends.


We're a highly collaborative group and would love to hear from you.

Our OHSU cardiovascular development team includes Kent Thornburg, George Giraud, Natasha Chattergoon, and Fred Tibayan. Also at OHSU is Jonker Lab collaborator Chuck Roselli. At University of Colorado Anschutz School of Medicine Perinatal Research Center are collaborators Laura Brown, Paul Rozance, and Stephanie Wesolowski. At the University of North Texas, we have collaborated with Dane Crossley. We recently welcomed Murali Padala to learn about our fetal sheep program.


We want to hear from you! Individuals from backgrounds under-represented in the biomedical workforce especially encouraged to reach out. Please send us an email introducing yourself, describing your scientific interests and how you think they'd fit into our lab. Include your CV.
