Research Group Gene Expression & Metabolism

Focus on metabolic diseases

The group focuses on how metabolic diseases arise as a combination of interactions between differences in individuals’ genetic profiles and their varying environments.

A glimpse into our research

We examine how changes to diet and exercise affect the development or prevention of obesity, diabetes, fatty liver disease, and how these clinical diseases are caused by long-term underlying changes at the molecular, cellular, and tissue-level. To this end, we have developed and use large-scale measurement technologies to quantify the molecular landscapes of cells and tissues.
