The training program five postdoctoral positions available for the calendar year 2021-2022.

    Training grant preceptors fall into major interest groups across a spectrum of type 1 and 2 diabetes research – mathematical modeling in diabetes, islet biology, autoimmune diabetes, adipocryte biology, neuronal regulation of metabolism, mechanisms of insulin resistance, metabolic control in liver and muscle, and diabetes complications – each area containing investigators pursuing basic research with potential translational applicability.

    Postdoctoral research training is supplemented by a core curriculum in molecular pathogenesis of diabetes, a series of educational seminars/classes and workshops on grant writing, career skills, and research methodologies.
