Imaging Research Specialist I
Over the last 3 years the lab has worked with a non-profit research foundation, the Lipedema Foundation (LF, www.lipedema.org), to study patients with an underdiagnosed disease called lipedema. Our lab now has possession of the LF biorepository of biological samples acquired from human research subjects with or without lipedema. Current needs in the lab are to manage this resource as a biorepository and an associated database. This role will assist the PI with management of this resource and continued acquisition of new samples to support lipedema research.
About the Institute of Imaging Science
At Vanderbilt we believe the greatest successes for imaging in the future will come from environments where the complementary natures of different imaging approaches are exploited, where experts in basic sciences and technical aspects of image formation and analysis collaborate closely with biomedical scientists who ask appropriate questions, and where the basic underlying science of imaging is fostered.
