Dr. Roman is the Director of the Molecular and Physiological Imaging Laboratory. The laboratory’s approach is to combine modern physiological and molecular biological techniques with imaging modalities. There are two main areas of research in the laboratory which are NIH supported; using magnetic resonance to...

Research Summary The overall focus of the lab is metabolic signaling.  We are particularly interested in the insulin-mediated regulation of energy storage in adipocytes and hepatocytes, the interplay of glucose and lipid metabolism, the regulation of hepatic glucose production, and the molecular mechanisms underlying the...

Research Summary My research interests deal with the characterization of genetic variation in humans, the elucidation of the forces shaping and maintaining this variation, and the integration of knowledge from evolutionary and disease mapping studies to help dissect the genetic bases of common diseases and...

Dr. Samuel Refetoff specializes in adult and pediatric endocrinology, with expertise in congenital and inherited thyroid diseases. His laboratory work focuses on identifying genetic errors that cause defects in thyroid hormone regulation, synthesis, transport and action. Dr. Refetoff has described several genetic diseases of the...

Steiner revolutionized our understanding of the chemistry and biochemistry of polypeptide hormones. His contributions to understanding the biochemical nature of insulin production and the development of C-peptide measurement have had profound scientific and clinical implications. In 1967, he showed that insulin was produced as a...
