Diabetes Related Research Activities:

Research in the Gilbert lab focuses on the pathogenesis of diabetes complications as a way to evolve new therapies to prevent their development and attenuate their progression. Current projects involve translational research in diabetic nephropathy, retinopathy and heart failure, exploring novel  pharmacological treatments and the use of adult stem cells to regenerate diseased tissue.

Diabetes Related Research Activities:

We study the role of a mitochondrial named NLRX1 in diabetes. Our preliminary research has identified that NLRX1 plays a role in the regulation of body weight and of obseity-induced diabetes in vivo. Because NLRX1 was identified as a key regulator of apoptosis during inflammation, we are interested in identifying how this mitochondrial protein links obesity and diabetes with inflammation and cell death.

Diabetes Related Research Activities:

Research in the Greenwood lab is focused on understanding the effect of diet and metabolic disorders, including type 2 diabetes, on the retention or loss of cognitive function with aging. Our studies, in both humans and animal models, show that the consumption of diets which promote obesity and type 2 diabetes are associated with more rapid decline in cognitive function.  By contrast, consumption of healthy diets associates with retention of cognitive function.  Our current interest lies in understanding the adverse brain effects of type 2 diabetes.  These studies draw on functional magnetic resonance imaging as a means of determining underlying neuronal pathways and neuronal responses which are impacted.
