We seek real answers to critical metabolic health issues by studying real people. In partnership with Samaritan Athletic Medicine, we investigate the use of lifestyle intervention – changes in physical activity and diet – to improve metabolic health. Consider participating in one of our ongoing research studies.
We investigate the molecular and cellular basis of metabolic disease and lifestyle interventions. We employ sophisticated techniques to evaluate the role of lipids, mitochondria and various cellular processes in the development of skeletal muscle insulin resistance.
