Lipid droplets: fascinating organelles that integrate nutrition, cell signaling and disease etiology

 

Dr. Doug Mashek is Professor of BMBB and Medicine, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Mashek's research focuses on the relationship between lipid metabolism and the development of metabolic and aging-related diseases. A primary emphasis is on studies involving lipid droplet biology in the context of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, Type 2 Diabetes, cancer and aging. A major focus is on understanding how lipid droplets are catabolized and how they communicate within cells to influence cell function. We also conduct pre-clinical and clinical studies to determine how alterations in diet and dietary patterns (fasting, time-restricted feeding, etc.) and exercise alter metabolism to improve health.

Seminar will take place from 11:30 – 12:20pm via Zoom.
