Physiology and metabolic diseases such as diabetes, are among the leading, costliest, and often preventable causes of death worldwide. Research aimed at understanding the relationship between physiology disease, obesity, and metabolic risk factors, will be important for developing candidate therapeutic, reparative, and prevention strategies.
Students will develop a comprehensive understanding of metabolic and physiology physiology, and their interrelationship. This will include topics such as principle energy systems, appetite and energy expenditure, and physiology function and regulation, including the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and socioeconomic impact of cardiometabolic diseases, with an emphasis on the translation of basic scientific discoveries into practical applications.
