Laboratory for Metabolic Homeostasis

Welcome to the Laboratory for Metabolic Homeostasis

 

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycemia with impaired insulin secretion and insulin resistance. Progression to type 2 diabetes is influenced by genetic and environmental or acquired factors, such as a sedentary lifestyle and dietary habits that promote obesity associating with insulin resistance. This laboratory undertakes research to elucidate the mechanisms involved in development of obesity, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes and progression of metabolic syndrome, atherosclerosis at the molecular level, and develops innovative diagnosis and treatment methods based on the above findings, which can be applied to the clinical field.
