Say hello to our awesome Metabolism graduate students!

The Committee on Molecular Metabolism is a PhD granting program training the next generation of researchers in the study of metabolic diseases at the University of Chicago Medicine. It is administratively housed in the Section of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism but acts as a focal point for clinical and basic science researchers throughout the Biological Sciences Division with an interest in metabolism based research. The graduate students in the program thus can conduct their thesis work on basic, clinical and/or translational research areas.

Kovler has previously funded these graduate students and their research.
