Research summary

Dr. Vern Dolinsky’s research is focused on investigating the mechanisms involved in the development of gestational diabetes and how gestational diabetes contributes to the developmental origins of obesity, diabetes and related cardiovascular disorders in youth. His laboratory utilizes a combination of experimental animals, in vivo imaging as well as cellular, molecular, biochemical, genomic and epigenomic approaches to expand the knowledge about the biological mechanisms that lead to obesity, diabetes and heart disease. This information aims to guide the development of novel therapies for obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
