Open postdoctoral position, faculty mentor Anjan Kowluru


The fellow will be involved in studies, which are aimed at understanding G protein-mediated signaling mechanisms underlying islet beta-cell function in health and diabetes. Specifically, these investigations will assess roles of G proteins and their regulatory factors in physiological insulin secretion, and potential abnormalities in these signaling modules in beta-cell models of impaired insulin secretion and diabetes.
