Signaling Obesity

Monday, August 27, 2012

Dr. Young-Hwan Jo has been awarded $1.8 million over five years by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases to support his research of physiological interactions between two distinct types of neurons located within the hypothalamus, and their relation to obesity resulting from a surplus of energy known as a positive energy balance. Dr. Jo will attempt to determine how the exchanges between different populations of neurons contribute to the control of hypothalamic neurophysiology and the regulation of energy homeostasis in relation to obesity. Dr. Jo is assistant professor of medicine and of molecular pharmacology.
