Research Contribution

Obesity contributes to the pathogenesis of numerous metabolic diseases, including cancer and diabetes. My laboratory is focused on identifying the key metabolic alterations that contribute to the development of obesity-related disorders and testing whether targeting cellular metabolism represents a viable therapeutic approach to treat these diseases.
