Overview
Robert Farese, Jr., is Chair and Professor of the Department of Molecular Metabolism at the Harvard School of Public Health and Professor of Cell Biology at Harvard Medical School, where he has run a laboratory jointly with Dr. Tobias Walther since 2014. Dr. Farese earned a B.S. in chemistry at the University of Florida and an M.D. at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. He trained in medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and completed a research fellowship in Endocrinology and Metabolism at the University of California, San Francisco and the Gladstone Institutes.

Dr. Farese serves on the board of the Bluefield Project to Cure Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD). He has received numerous honors, including election to the American Society for Clinical Investigation and the Association of American Physicians, the Bristol-Myers Squibb “Freedom to Discover Award”, and the Avanti Award in Lipids.

Research

The Farese-Walther laboratory studies cellular lipid and energy metabolism, in particular the mechanisms and physiology of neutral lipid synthesis and storage in lipid droplets. More broadly, the lab investigates the mechanisms by which cells regulate the abundance of lipids, how they store lipids to buffer fluctuations in their availability, and how these processes function in membrane biology and cell physiology.

Dr. Farese has made important contributions to our understanding of lipid metabolism. His laboratory discovered genes that encode enzymes critical for neutral lipid metabolism, including the DGAT enzymes which mediate triglyceride (TG) synthesis. Excessive accumulation of TGs underlies obesity, diabetes, fatty liver, and other metabolic diseases. Since 2007, Dr. Farese’s laboratory has studied the role of lipid metabolism in the central nervous system, particularly in neurodegenerative disorders such as Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD).

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
