Welcome to the Kaestner Lab

The Kaestner Lab is part of the Department of Genetics and Institute for Diabetes, Obesity, and Metabolism at the University of Pennsylvania. We employ modern genetic, genomic, and epigenomic approaches to understand the molecular mechanisms of organogenesis and physiology of the liver, pancreas and gastrointestinal tract. Disease areas targeted by our research include diabetes and cancer.

Interested in joining the team? We are always seeking highly motivated postdocs and grad students. Please email your statement of research interests, cover letter, and CV to kaestner@pennmedicine.upenn.edu.
