Diabetes Research - Dr Mike Stolinski
My research uses stable isotopic tracers to investigate the role of lipids and lipoprotein metabolism in health and disease. Current research is involved in understanding the links between obesity and the increased risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD). This is being carried out by investigating the progression of metabolic diseases in relation to development of metabolic syndrome and non alcoholic fatty liver disease. My research encompasses an integrative physiology approach utilising clinical metabolic studies, analytical, molecular as well as in vitro cell culture techniques.
