Research focus

Dr. He’s research focuses on liver metabolism, in particular, glucose and lipid metabolism and the involvement of mitochondrial dynamics. Currently, his laboratory is working on an NIH-funded project to define the molecular mechanisms of metformin’s effects on mitochondrial dynamics and respiration through AMPK activation. He has another NIH-funded project to investigate mechanisms leading to the paradoxical concurrence of insulin resistance and hepatic steatosis in obesity and type 2 diabetes. In addition, his laboratory is studying the mechanisms responsible for the mitochondrial expansion in neonates.
