Metabolic Diseases; Breakthrough Discoveries in Diabetes & Obesity 2016December 1 - 2, 2016 Novotel Melbourne St Kilda

A/Prof Matthew Rodeheffer

The primary focus of the Rodeheffer laboratory is to elucidate the cellular and molecular mechanisms that control adipose tissue mass in both normal and disease states. Adipose tissue is primarily composed of lipid-filled adipocytes, which arise from adipocyte precursor cells during embryonic and postnatal development. In obesity, adipocyte precursor cells give rise to new adipocytes, contributing the the growth of white adipose tissue.
