Expert Profile
I have long-standing interest in molecular mechanism of obesity and type 2 diabetes, with a research goal to discover novel therapeutic or preventive options for the metabolic disorder. My work has revealed a critical role for FoxO1 in the regulation of metabolism, autophagy and adipose biology. We have also discovered that altered DNA methylation in mitochondrial genome may characterize metabolic changes in obesity and prediabetes.
