The Arthur Riggs Diabetes & Metabolism Research Institute at City of Hope has a postdoctoral position available in the laboratory of Dr. Komatsu / Dr. Kandeel in the Department of Translational Research & Cellular Therapeutics. They are seeking a creative, experienced and highly collaborative postdoctoral associate with a strong interest in the translational research in Type 1 diabetes. The research goal for this position is to establish the extrahepatic islet transplantation strategy in animal models that can be translated into the clinical. Several projects are ongoing with highly productive collaborators including extramural engineers. By integrating our broad knowledge of islet physiology with engineering approaches, we seek to develop novel strategy of islet transplantation. These projects are led by the principal investigator with extensive clinical experience as translational researches. The selected candidate will take initiative in developing the new islet transplantation approaches using animal islet transplantation models. Candidates with clinical experience, beta cell biology and/or molecular biology, are particularly welcome to apply.
