The Diabetes Center of Excellence currently consists of basic and physician scientists representing a broad range of disciplines in the biomedical and clinical sciences, with members from several Medical School Departments and Programs working together as central New England’s leading center for diabetes clinical care, innovation, and discovery. The Center occupies state-of-the-art research space on an expanding Medical School campus.  Basic investigators benefit from core facilities for deep sequencing, proteomics, genotyping, fluorescence-activated cell sorting, digital imaging/confocal microscopy, genomics/bioinformatics, transgenic/knockout mice, and mouse metabolic phenotyping. Clinical and community investigators benefit from infrastructure for recruitment and retention of research participants, measurement, behavioral and nutritional intervention resources and facilities, and academic-community research partnerships.  Adult and pediatric clinical efforts of the Diabetes Center are housed in a wonderful Ambulatory Clinical Care building designed so that patients can receive appropriate retinal photos, foot care, diabetes education, and other routine medical care at one location.  The position will be highly competitive with regard to start-up funds, laboratory space (if needed) and salary.  The Center seeks an individual of outstanding research potential relating to diabetes pathophysiology or treatment.
