Irwin J Kurland
Albert Einstein College of Medicine
Irwin J Kurland, MD, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Medicine, and Director of the Stable Isotope and Metabolomics Core Facility at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Dr Kurland\'s laboratory has helped, for over a decade, to establish stable isotope phenotyping methodology for assessing inter-organ fuel switching. Recent papers by the Kurland laboratory illustrate the regulatory role of lysine acetylation on enzymes in tissue specific metabolic networks (Yang et al., J. Proteome Res. 2011), and the linkage between disturbances in fasted/re-fed acetyl CoA levels and dysregulated global lysine acetylation, on the fasted/re-fed metabolic network response (Vaitheesvaran et al., PLOS One 2012).
