This novel position will develop and manage a research program focusing on the area of immunometabolism, glucose and lipid metabolism, hormone action, and its interface with antibody therapeutics against metabolic disease. Key activities include, but are not limited to, working with other scientists in the group to identify, develop and implement sophisticated research methods to pursue the following questions:

  • Biochemical and biophysical studies for target protein characterization and physiological and pathophysiological roles in disease states
  • Supervise, coordinate and/or directly engage in mechanistic studies to characterize target action
  • Development of cellular assays and facilitate their HTP implementation in partner labs, coordinate CRO activities
  • Activities for functional validation of antibodies generated by partners, coordinate CRO activities, and efforts on identification of biomarkers, and patient stratification, Mendelian stratification, etc., for clinical transition.
  • Exploration of a large animal model in addition to mice to produce a scalable supply of endogenous protein and other studies

Additionally, this position will advise the PI in the development of research goals in this research area that could result in additional 3rd party relationships and in the eventual development of commercialization strategies. Evaluate project progress and advise the PI on alternative research strategies and methods to stimulate positive outcomes.
