    Research in Plain Language

    I am interested in the physiology of obesity—how the body regulates energy intake and energy use.  We use mice to study regulation of metabolic rate and body temperature and to explore potential drug treatments for human obesity.  I believe that mouse studies will generate hypotheses for testing in the clinical setting, and similarly, that clinical observations will spur investigations using mouse models.
