The post-doctoral fellow will work in the Zaganjor lab in the Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics at Vanderbilt University. The projects available in the lab include probing the role of mitochondrial metabolism in physiology and age-related diseases.
In the area of mitochondrial metabolism we are interested in:
– Examining the mechanisms by which mitochondrial sirtuins regulate adipose development and organismal health.
– Identifying new metabolic mechanisms involved in tumor formation, chemoresistance and metastasis.
For additional information refer to our publications: https://lab.vanderbilt.edu/zaganjor-lab/publications/
