Diabetes and Obesity Research Center
Our mission is to understand different primary and secondary risk factors that contribute to diabetes and obesity and find new ways to prevent, treat and cure these diseases based on innovative research. As the prevalence and treatment costs for diabetes and obesity continue to rise, our Center’s mission becomes even more important.
The Diabetes and Obesity Research Center aims to perform excellent, competitive and cutting edge research; train new generations of leaders to excel in their field of interest; and educate the populace in improving their general health.
We are recruiting young, highly motivated, friendly, cooperative, and caring individuals to develop independent competitive research programs in their area of choice related to the Center’s mission. Additionally, ample opportunities are available to join existing research programs. Our Center provides a caring and nurturing environment for the training and growth of young scientists.
