My main area of interest and expertise is the Neuroendocrinology of appetite and metabolic disorders. I am fascinated by the lack of understanding of how peripheral tissues, such as the liver, pancreas and muscle control higher brain functions and vice versa. In the future, more and more emphasis will be put on mechanisms that explain how cells in various tissues use nutrients, which in turn, determine health and longevity.
