"Primary Cilia and Energy Metabolism"

Goal: To elucidate the role of ciliary signal transduction in energy metabolism

  • Primary cilia and the role in islet hormone secretion
  • Primary cilia and peripheral islet hormone action
  • Ciliary function and cellular bioenergetics
  • Method development: Imaging-based assays of ciliary function
