Deng receives EB2019 Data Sciences International Physiological ‘Omics Trainee Research Excellence Award

Guorui (Gary) DengGuorui Deng, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow in the Grobe laboratory was selected to receive a 2019 Trainee Research Excellence Award, sponsored by Data Sciences International (DSI), from the American Physiological Society (APS) Physiological ‘Omics research group.  This interest group within the APS “serves as a bridge between physiology and omic-related sciences; it provides a forum for communication and collaboration among physiologists with an interest in omic-related sciences, including but not limited to: genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, systems biology, computational biology, bioinformatics, genetics, and gene manipulation and molecular intervention.”  Dr. Deng’s research into second-messenger signaling and modulation by regulator of G protein signaling (RGS) proteins within the hypothalamus and within the placenta utilizes a wide array of cutting-edge sequencing and ‘omics type approaches, and therefore represents an ideal example of the application of ‘omics approaches to biomedical research.  He recently completed a distinguished postdoctoral fellowship provided by the American Heart Association through its Strategically Focused Research Network: Hypertension, and is now supported by an individual postdoctoral fellowship from the American Heart Association.
