​Research Interests 

The lab is focused on disease oriented research in the fields of obesity and diabetes. Our main focus is studying the early processes that lead to obesity driven alterations in glucose metabolism and the development of cardiovascular risk factors. The lab specializes in human subject research and the performance of in vivo metabolic studies and imaging of lipid depots. These include traditional and innovative clamp studies and evaluation of vascular function. Mathematical modeling of islet function and the study of gut derived hormones are additional aspects of these studies. We are additionally focused on diabetes and obesity related technologies aimed at improving the management of patients with type 1 diabetes as well as in modification of satiety signals.
