Brain-Liver Axis

The hypothalamus is an important up-stream integrator of hormonal and nutritional signals from the periphery. Elucidating how the hypothalamus integrates these signals and controls metabolic homeostasis, will help us to better tackle Type 2 Diabetes and to effectively manage its onset and progression. Therefore, we seek to understand the biological role of hypothalamic regulation of glucose and insulin metabolism specifically through a brain-liver axis.
