Your research:     Our research goal is to eliminate obesity and the pathophysiologies of obesity. This enormous goal ensures that we maintain our research focus on addressing a societal issue that affects nearly two-thirds of Americans. Accordingly, we have research focused on 1) type 2 diabetes and obesity associated hypertension and asthma, 2) development of effective, ligand directed chemotherapeutic for cancer, and 3) central nervous system control of visceral blood flow and food intake.

What do you like to do outside of the lab?    I love crafty things, like making models, sewing, cross-stitching, embroidery, and anything else I can find the time to do.
