Research

Research Interests

Keywords: Diabetes, Obesity, Nutritional and hormonal regulation of beta-cell mass and function.

Our research efforts are aimed at identifying novel molecular mechanisms that govern beta-cell differentiation, proliferation, and survival. The overall goal is to harness the therapeutic potential of these newly discovered targets to stimulate the generation of new beta-cells and to expand and protect the functional beta-cells that still reside in the pancreas of patients with diabetes.

Courses

AFNS 543 - Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease and Lifestyle

This is an advanced course examining the relationship between the role of lifestyle factors in the etiology and pathophysiology, as well as the treatment of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Application of recent findings to our understanding of these chronic metabolic diseases will be addressed. Not to be taken if credit received for NUTR 443. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.


NUTR 443 - Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease and Lifestyle

This is an advanced course examining the relationship between the role of lifestyle factors in the etiology and pathophysiology, as well as the treatment of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Application of recent findings to our understanding of these chronic metabolic diseases will be addressed. Prerequisites: (NUTR 301 or 303) and (NUTR 302 or 304).


NUTR 450 - Undergraduate Dietetics Specialization Research Project

An independent research project on topics in nutritional science and supervised by a faculty member. Normally this is a continuation of work begun in NUTR 400. It includes implementation of a research project relevant to dietetic practice, data analysis and presentation of results orally and in writing. Prerequisite: NUTR 400.
