Cell Metabolism and Signalling

Vienberg Group 

We explore the role of microRNAs in controlling cellular signaling pathways regulating whole body glucose and lipid homeostasis using cell-based and animal models of type 2 diabetes.

We are particularly interested in understanding the mechanism by which insulin fails to suppress hepatic glucose production in obesity or type 2 diabetes, while concomitantly, lipogenesis is paradoxically increased.

Our group is also very interested in examining how the miRNA processing system is regulated under metabolic challenges.
