Waldhart AN et al. Phosphorylation of TXNIP by AKT mediates acute influx of glucose in response to insulin. Cell Rep.
A postdoctoral fellow position is immediately open in the Wu Lab, which investigates glucose and lipid metabolism in order to understand how nutrients can delay the effects of aging and delay or prevent disease onset. There are several projects available, including genetic models, signaling mechanisms using tissue-cultured cells, protein purification, and structural analysis using cryo-EM. The position is supported by a recent R01. Learn more and apply here.
