Diabetes ResearchPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2017-Apr-16
The Diabetes Section is within the Laboratory of Clinical Investigation (LCI), along with the Bioanalytical Chemistry and Drug Development Section, Lipid Mediators of Inflammation and Pain Unit, and the Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Section. The common theme among these research groups is the identification and development of new therapeutic targets for the treatment of age-related diseases, both within the laboratory and across the Intramural Research Program.
The focus of the Diabetes section is to investigate the metabolic and physiologic alterations that occur in pre-diabetic states and elucidate the underlying etiopathology to develop effective strategies to prevent the transition to diabetes, using both human and animal models. Currently we are studying the regulation of glucose metabolism by the peripheral endocannabinoid system. We specifically focus on liver, skeletal muscle, and endocrine pancreas and its role in numerous conditions such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, lipodystrophy, fatty liver disease, hepatitis, immunity, and aging.
These positions are guaranteed for two years with the possibility of annual renewal up to a maximum of five years. NIH offers excellent salary and health care packages to its trainees and has consistently been ranked among the best places to work for postdoctoral fellows. This support is not dependent on grant funding.
