Metabolic Regulation and Obesity
Category(ies) of Research:
Descriptor of Research:
Mechanisms and treatments (nutritional/exercise/pharmaceutical) for whole body and myocardial substrate (e.g. amino acid, glucose, fatty acid) metabolism abnormalities in metabolic diseases such as HIV-Metabolic Syndrome (MS), diabetes, obesity/metabolic syndrome and adult and pediatric skeletal and cardiomyopathy (e.g.. Barth Syndrome). Also, in women with diabetes, HIV and obesity, I am interested in the effect of nutrient metabolism during pregnancy on in utero development and childhood metabolic disease.
