The Engin Laboratory is focused on understanding how cellular stress responses, ER and mitochondrial dysfunction play a role in beta cell physiology and pathology. Current projects involve studying molecular mechanisms of the unfolded protein response (UPR) signaling pathway in autoimmune diabetes. The work involves working with the tissue specific mouse models of the UPR pathway and mechanistic studies using cell culture, biochemical and immunological assays. More information about our research and publications can be found at enginlab.org.
The ideal candidate is expected to be a creative, productive and self-motivated individual with the ability to think critically, learn quickly and function both independently and within a team.
The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but, also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities.
