Unit of Genomics, diabetes and endocrinology

Genomics, diabetes and endocrinology unit at the Medical faculty focuses on understanding the genetic and metabolic heterogeneity of diabetes, which could help in identifying novel drug targets.

It may also help the pharma industry to better stratify patients for drug trials and thereby reduce cost for development of new drugs. To address this important mission we conduct population-based studies in patients with diabetes of different ethnicities across the world.

In this specific project, we are seeking an enthusiastic and experienced researcher in diabetes, one who likes to take responsibility for conducting clinical studies, enjoy being in a busy working environment and who likes bridging national and international collaborations.
