My lab uses genetics and genomics to discover new genes affecting diabetes susceptibility. Most of these genes function in islet cells. We also study the mechanisms by which non-coding SNPs responsible for diabetes susceptibility affect gene expression. We also study lipid and lipoprotein metabolism and diabetic nephropathy.
