Human Physiology Laboratory


The goal of this laboratory is to understand the relationships between adipose tissue expansion in obesity and metabolic abnormalities, with emphasis on cellular and molecular mechanisms in skeletal muscles; to investigate the impact of environmental and/or pharmacological interventions on brown adipose mass and activity; and to perform research in aging designed to assess the impact of caloric restriction in nonobese humans on biomarkers of longevity.
