We use a variety of experimental approaches. Prospective students postdocs could utilize their expertise in (or become trained in) any of the following:

You don't have to have previous experience in these methods, we'll teach you!


The Robia lab is located in a new building on the Loyola University Chicago Medical Center campus, the Center for Translational Research and Education, which opened in 2016. Our lab is on the top (5th) floor of this building, with views of a forest preserve and the Chicago skyline. The top two floors of the CTRE contain the labs of faculty in the Cardiovascular Research Institute. This puts the Robia lab in close proximity with collaborators who share similar research interests. We are lucky to work in a very collegial and collaborative atmosphere as part of the Department of Cell and Molecular Physiology in the Stritch School of Medicine, Loyola University Chicago. Our campus is located in Maywood, 12 miles west of downtown Chicago, Illinois. This location in the near-west suburbs makes it an easy commute whether you want to live in the city or the suburbs.
