Metabolic Research Unit

Introduction

The Metabolic Research Unit focuses on the causes and characterisation of complex metabolic diseases including obesity and type 2 diabetes. We utilise cutting edge technologies in conjunction with unique model systems to discover novel factors involved in the development of obesity and type 2 diabetes, and we use this knowledge to investigate novel compounds that may be developed as drugs to treat these diseases. We have a strong platform in cell culture and molecular biology, and a focus on pre-clinical development of novel therapeutics.
