Neurosci, 2019; Dutta et al., PNAS 2018).

A postdoctoral position is available to study the role of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR)- and beta-arrestin-dependent signaling pathways in type 2 diabetes and obesity. The project involves the generation and analysis of new mouse models which express novel classes of designer GPCRs in a cell-type specific fashion (Wang L, et al. Annu Rev Pharmacol Toxicol doi: 10.1146/annurev-pharmtox-030220-121042 (2020)).

About The National Institutes of Health (NIH)

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the primary agency of the United States government responsible for biomedical and public health research. It was founded in the late 1880s and is now part of the United States Department of Health and Human Services. The majority of NIH facilities are located in Bethesda, Maryland and other nearby suburbs of the Washington metropolitan area, with other primary facilities in the Research Triangle Park in North Carolina and smaller satellite facilities located around the United States. The NIH conducts its own scientific research through its Intramural Research Program (IRP) and provides major biomedical research funding to non-NIH research facilities through its Extramural Research Program.

As of 2013, the Intramural Research Program (IRP) had 1,200 principal investigators and more than 4,000 postdoctoral fellows in basic, translational, and clinical research, being the largest biomedical research institution in the world, while, as of 2003, the extramural arm provided 28% of biomedical research funding spent annually in the U.S., or about US$26.4 billion.
