Research

I am working on the importance of sex hormones on Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) biosynthesis through Nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (Nampt) regulation in adipose tissue. This will elucidate the mechanisms behind the sexual dimorphisms seen in previous NAD research and has applications for studying metabolic and reproductive dysfunctions.
