About Guertin Lab

We are exploring the biochemical mechanisms controlling growth and metabolism and their significance to the pathogenesis of metabolic diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes and Cancer.  Our current work focuses on understanding the intersections between signal transduction pathways and the metabolic machinery with a particular focus on the Insulin/PI3K and mTOR pathways.  We are also studying the biology of brown and white adipose tissue and how defects in adipose tissue growth and metabolism can alter energy homeostasis and promote disease.  The long-term goal is to identify key nodes of metabolic control that can be targeted therapeutically to improve human health.


The Guertin Lab is in the Program in Molecular Medicine
