My lab focuses on understanding the molecular mechanism of obesity related insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. We have three major projects:
1) The role of adipose inflammation in imparing insulin signaling in obese state.
2) The role of dysregulated liver glucose homeostasis in oebsity-related hyperglycemia.
3) The role of novel AMPK related kinase in enrgy metabolism
