Metabolic Diseases

  Obesity is a major risk factor for metabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, cardiovascular disease and cancers. The number of patients with metabolic diseases rapidly increasing and is reaching the levels of infectious diseases.

  Our lab is interested in understanding the molecular pathways that link adipose tissue biology to this staggering array of pathologies such as diabetes and metabolic diseases. These studies can be the scientific basis for developing novel anti-diabetic agents.


    Cancer is one of the most important disease in the worldwide that is considered as the highest cause of death and the mechanism that is consist of various stages in each type of tissue. Moreover, multiple proteins are identified as therapeutic targets for treatment.

  Our lab is conducting research to reveal mechanisms that induce the development of liver cancer, colon cancer, and leukemia among several tissues, and also examines mechanisms related to cell metabolism.
