Researchers in our division collaborate with basic science and clinical investigators at the National Institutes of Health, Duke University, and other academic medical institutions.
Some examples of project collaborations include:
- Examining the role of behavior in the etiology and treatment of type 2 diabetes
- Employing functional genomics to define the scope of biased ligand effects and determine the extent to which they are conserved across different GPCRs and target tissues
- Studying endogenous selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) as regulators of bone homeostasis
- Examining metabolic bone disease and osteoporosis in the lung transplant population
- Behavior modification with regard to diet, motivational aspects of behavior change, behavioral interventions for overweight/obesity and hypertension, and the possible role of hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance in weight loss
- Lifestyle intervention for weight loss in young adults
- Family support in diabetes and potential impact on diabetes complications
- Phase one and two first-in-human studies examining the effects of a monoclonal antibody and enzyme replacement therapy for X-linked hypophosphatemic rickets and hypophosphatasia, respectively
