In addition to outstanding clinical training, all fellows are provided with the basic tools and mentorship to conduct clinical and/or basic research. Fellows are expected to engage in at least one research project during their fellowship. Fellow projects are presented at Endocrine Grand Rounds before completion of their fellowship training.
Fellows are encouraged to find a faculty mentor whose research interests align with their own. The faculty has a broad range of investigative expertise, including active projects in the following areas: diabetes prevention, integrative therapies for diabetes, pancreatic islet research, brown adipose tissue and epicardial fat, stem cell differentiation, thyroid hormone metabolism and signaling, thyroid cancer, and thyroid dysfunction in pregnancy, pituitary disease and dysfunction, and disorders of bone and mineral metabolism.
Those who are interested in pursuing a career focusing on research are encouraged to apply to the STAR Program. The STAR Program is based on the NIH K30 training program and is a unique opportunity to pursue an M.S. or Ph.D. degree.
