Our interdisciplinary lab features expertise in cell biology, physiology, biochemistry, and bioinformatics.
We work with a range of model systems including flies, mice, cell models, and humans under both normal and perturbed conditions. We then use systems or cybernetic tools to try and understand the deterministic features of these systems.
Our work explores:
- Which molecular pathways are triggered by exercise to create enduring health benefits
- How key metabolic hormones, such as insulin, work and how these pathways become abnormal in disease
- How genes interact with the environment to present particular metabolic phenotypes.
The answers to these questions promise to transform the way medicine is delivered.
