Diabetes, Obesity & Metabolism
Researchers within this area have expertise in studying bile acid, glucose, lipid and lipoprotein metabolism.
Researchers in the Hearing Research Focus Area are interested in how the central nervous system functions in association with hearing and vocal communication, how it is affected by hearing disorders, and how interventions of the peripheral and central nervous systems may ameliorate hearing disorders.
Heart & Blood Vessel Disease
Research within the Heart and Blood Vessel Disease Research Focus Area is comprised of four clusters of investigators in different scientific areas with a focus on heart and blood vessel diseases.
Researchers within this area have a multi-level understanding of musculoskeletal anatomy, function and pathology.
Neurodegenerative Disease & Aging
Recent evidence indicates a number of similarities between different age-related neurodegenerations. We believe that determining the underlying mechanisms of these commonalities in each disease can inform research on the other disorders. Our investigations focus on drug development and delivery, neuroinflammation, neurotoxicology, pre-degenerative pathologies, and unique predictors & symptoms.
