Research Overview

Our research takes a unique genetic approach to study organismal nutrition, metabolism and physiology. We are particularly interested in how adipose stem cells regulate adipose tissue development, homeostasis, obesogenic expansion, and thermogenesis. We also investigate how other tissues and niches control adipose stem cell biology and dynamics.


Areas of Interest

white adipose stem cell niche

muscle growth

brown and beige adipose niche

white adipose stem cell lineage

nutrient regulation of adipose stem cells
