Research

  • Metabolism, Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes

Dr. Steinberg's research involves understanding how hormones regulate the body’s storage and breakdown of fat and its response to insulin. He is conducting metabolic studies in which genetically modified mice exercise or consume calorie foods. How many and what type of calories (fat or carbohydrate) the mice burn will be measured both during exercise and in response to hormones. Steinberg’s studies will be complemented with work using advanced techniques in protein chemistry and molecular biology with an emphasis on phosphoproteomics (identifying, cataloguing and characterizing proteins) and gene expression analysis.
