My laboratory is interested in understanding how nutrient signaling pathways, such as the insulin/IGF-1/mTOR signaling pathway, regulates metabolism and aging. My laboratory has recently focused on understanding how mTOR complex 2 may regulate metabolism in the liver through the use of molecular biology in liver-derived cell lines and primary hepatocyte culture.
