Research Summary

The lab studies gut to brain signaling of the vagus nerve in the control of food intake. Our current focus is on developing new tools to selectively target vagal afferent neurons that innervate the gut and applying these tools in models of diet-induced obesity. The overall goal is to determine whether manipulating vagal gut-brain signaling can be a viable treatment of obesity.
