  • Kirsten Stone, PhD

RESEARCH FOCUS

The goal of this laboratory is to investigate the underlying signaling mechanisms that link dietary methionine restriction to enhancement of insulin sensitivity.

ABOUT THIS LAB

The Adipocyte Signaling lab investigates central mechanisms regulating SNS outflow to adipose tissue, mechanisms of SNS-dependent remodeling of adipose tissue, and functional consequences of adipose tissue remodeling
