Description

The long-term goal of my research is to elucidate mechanisms underlying regulation of energy homeostasis. Abnormal energy metabolism is associated with various diseases, including diabetes, obesity and cancer. My current studies will encompass fundamental investigation of physiological processes and novel approaches to therapeutic intervention. I will focus on a single regulatory pathway, glucocorticoid signaling, applying a combinatorial approach, including biochemistry, genetics, chemistry and physiology, to dissect its function in metabolic regulation.
