Research within the Division of Molecular Medicine is dedicated to defining the metabolic determinants of chronic diseases. Genetically modified animal models and studies in human subjects are combined with sophisticated isotopic tracing, computational flux modeling, and metabolomics approaches to allow our research to fully encompass the complexities of integrated physiology in health and disease. Our researchers aim to leverage the knowledge acquired from our experimental investigations to prevent, identify, and treat metabolic diseases including insulin resistance, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, liver cancer, and cardiovascular disease.
