Research Summary/In Plain Language

Research in Plain Language

We characterize various aspects of obesity and diabetes in mice. We use special instruments to measure body composition, body temperature, food intake, metabolic rates, and activity in mice. To study diabetes, we test how well mice respond to insulin, and whether they secrete enough insulin to control their glucose levels.
