Research interests

Clinical insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes are new metabolic disorders in children associated with the rise in obesity prevalence. Our group is interested in 1) the relationship between expression of adipocytokines and development of insulin resistance and 2) developing effective interventions by conducting RCT's
