Employment Opportunities

      

“U-M has been a great place to work because it’s one of the few places that bring together both basic science and clinical depth. This is critical for what I do. Our lab does a fair amount of basic biology, but at the end of the day, I’m a MD, and I want to directly benefit patients. That requires translation, and translation requires good ideas, resources, terrific patient care, and terrific clinical research infrastructure — and that’s what Michigan and internal medicine offer.”
