Neurobiology of Diabetes Research Unit

Aim: To delineate redox-sensitive mechanisms that link environmental changes with the hypothalamic control of energy and glucose homeostasis.

Main Projects

  • Redox regulation of MAP kinases in the hypothalamus;
  • Small molecule phosphatase activators as new therapeutic option for T2DM;
  • Ablation of calcineurin prevents from HFD-induced metabolic damage.
