 Mentoring 
 current student opportunities
Available: 10/01/13, Expires: 09/30/14

My lab has a range of opportunities from clinical studies in the regulation of appetite and metabolism to basic bench studies looking at molecular mediators of food intake and energy expenditure in mouse models. We are interested obesity, diabetes and anorexia nervosa. We are also interested on the effect of dietary composition on metabolism.
