Graduate student with Dr. Jessica Yue: CNS regulation of glucose and lipid metabolism

Dr. Jessica Yue is currently looking for hard-working graduate students interested in diabetes and obesity research.

Research projects will focus on how the brain regulates whole-body glucose and lipid metabolism. Research will involve methods in physiology, pharmacology, molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics. In addition to standard laboratory techniques, trainees will receive training to independently perform sophisticated surgeries and in vivo experiments to measure glucose and lipid production.
