Work with Us at the Powers & Brissova Research Group

The Powers and Brissova research groups in the Vanderbilt Diabetes Center are seeking postdoctoral fellows to study pancreatic islet biology with a focus on the molecular aspects of gene expression, developmental biology, computational biology, and multiplplex imaging of islets, especially in the human islet and pancreas. Our goal is to discover the fundamental molecular mechanisms of all forms of human diabetes, leading to the development of new therapies and/or prevention of diabetes. Our collaborative, diabetes-related research is part of the Human islet Research Network.
