Ithaca, New York, USA
Our research mission focuses on understanding basic mechanisms underlying the age-dependent decline in metabolic processes, including obesity, thermogenesis, and type 2 diabetes. Our NIH-funded lab uses innovative mouse models coupled with physiological, phenotypical, histological imaging, and cellular and molecular biology techniques to study disease states. The currently funded project is focused on the decline of beige fat development in the context of aging, obesity, and environmental temperatures.
