Clinical Obesity, Nutrition and Adipose Biology
Our laboratory is interested in the impact of diabetes and obesity on human health and how these adverse effects may be prevented or reversed. We are undertaking a number of different projects, including:
- determining the factors that predict metabolic and weight outcomes after bariatric surgery for obesity;
- examining how glucose, obesity and inflammation impact ageing, cognition and the brain;
- ascertaining the impact of diabetes and obesity on altering the expression of our genetic code, that is, epigenetic programming; and
- determining how inflammation and body fat predict diabetes development in people with long term HIV-infection.
