Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

Our research is focused on identifying genes, proteins and pathways that are important in metabolic disease and certain types of obesity related cancer, and then to develop pharmaceutical therapies that either activate or block the pathway of interest. We currently have several drug candidates that we are exploring and PhD projects that address these areas.
