Collaborate with Us

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
