Memories of disease could impact human lives down to the cellular level. That’s U-M researcher Claudia Loebel’s idea at least, and it landed her a fellowship from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
The University of Michigan is establishing a new Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) that will serve as a hub to support postdoctoral fellows across the university. U-M has more than 1,400 postdocs who work across all the schools and colleges and play a key part in the university’s research enterprise. The OPA will not only support these postdoctoral fellows as they prepare for their future careers, but will also guide and advise departments and programs about best-practice policies, processes, and services related to the employment and well-being of postdoctoral fellows.
