Richard Kibbey, MD/PhD

The Kibbey Lab has developed a unique experience with mitochondrial, cellular, tissues-specific and whole-body metabolism needed to advance mtGTP understanding. It is strongly vested in both understanding intracellular and inter-tissue metabolic flux associated with metabolic human disease. Differences in equilibrioception and responses to pharmacologic therapy are used to identify defects in metabolism as novel therapeutic targets for humans. The lab focuses mostly on 13C mass spectrometry, insulin resistance and secretion, bioenergetics, and applications to cellular, cancer and animal preclinical models.
