The overall goal of our research program is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms that regulate metabolic homeostasis, with the long-term goal of translating basic research findings into therapies for human health.
Obesity, Diabetes, Fatty liver disease
Using novel methods to image fatty acid metabolism in real-time and proteomic and lipidomic techniques, we plan to investigate the mechanisms by which cells sense lipids and maintain lipid homeostasis.
A second major project will expand upon the novel biology of ABHD5 interactions with the PNPLA lipase family to investigate the role in fatty liver disease and diabetes.
