Job Summary: The lab is dedicated to studying the genetics of metabolic diseases, with a special focus on diabetes. Our discovery platform is mouse genetics. We conduct genetic screens in mice for traits related to glucose metabolism, insulin secretion, and lipid metabolism. The lab has a broad skill set, which includes physiological studies in mice, tissue culture experiments, fluorescence microscopy in isolated pancreatic islets and in cell lines. We also carry out studies of gene expression, which includes assessment of open chromatin structure and gene expression through RNA-seq. The genetic screens and the analyses of genomic data provide us with actionable clues motivate our hypothesis-testing experiments.Th
