Diabetes and Obesity

Research in this area of diabetes and obesity primarily focuses on exercise and dietary interventions. This includes, but is not limited to, building on our understanding for how the amount of exercise required to influence glucose metabolism.

Research in this area also focuses on the underlying mechanism of pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes specifically focusing  on β-cell dysfunction and molecular mechanisms of obesity associated with insulin resistance as well as proglucagon-derived peptides and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and their role in weight loss.
