Descriptor of Research

I have a long-standing interest in metabolic research with focus on sexual dimorphism, nutrition and aging. I am an expert in the use of tracer and non-tracer methods for the evaluation of substrate kinetics in vivo in human subjects and have been conducting studies to evaluate the effect of aging and nutritional and physical activity interventions on insulin action, glucose, fatty acid and muscle protein metabolism in vivo in men and women.
