Adropin is a liver-secreted peptide that is crucial for metabolic health. However, the molecular functions and clinical significance of adropin have not been adequately explored. Our lab investigates adropin expression profiles and its links to cardiometabolic disease risk in rodent and primate models, thus trying to increase our translational and mechanistic understanding of this fascinating hormone.
I am also involved in a second project where I explore whether adropin acts in the central nervous system to regulate or maintain cognitive function.
Additionally, I am also in charge of setting up and maintaining the metabolic phenotyping core in Saint Louis University.
