The role of adipose tissue dysfunction in type 2 diabetes and other metabolic complications in ageing.


Health Technology and Informatics

Applications accepted all year round Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

Adipose tissue is the largest endocrine organ that responsible for whole body energy and glucose homeostasis. However, adipose tissue functions gradually decline, which leads to a cluster of metabolic disease including type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. This project is to identify the pathogenic pathways in adipose tissue during ageing using OMICS approaches and different animal models established in my lab recently.
