    Research Summary

    My clinical research covers a wide area of outcomes after bariatric surgery and emerging technology for the treatment of diabetes and obesity My lab research efforts are focused on an animal model of obesity and the molecular mechanism of diabetes and obesity; we are seeking answers that will lead to drug discovery and thereby translate into clinical protocol and cutting edge medicine
