Research Description

Our research looks into the effects of various compounds on mitochondrial uncoupling in skeletal muscle, neurons, and adipose. Some of the compounds we have studied include β-Hydroxybutyrate, Myriocin, and SGI-1252. We study the degree of uncoupling via respiration studies, western blots, and qPCR.
