Our laboratory is interested in how thyroid hormone regulates metabolism broadly. To that end we have a specific interest in signaling pathways
that mediate the regulation of energy expenditure and body weight.  Given the role of these pathways in the development of type 2 diabetes insight gained could lead to novel therapeutic options. To delineate how thyroid hormone engages these pathways the laboratory employs a variety of mouse models and metabolic techniques.
