Metabolism Core

The Metabolism Core of the Aging Institute is managed by the Metabolism Unit in the Center for Metabolism and Mitochondrial Medicine (C3M).  The mission of Metabolism Unit is to make available platform technologies, training, and study design and data analysis expertise for in vivo, ex vivo, and in vitro metabolic studies in rodent and cell culture models. The expertise of the unit extends from assessment of metabolic flux, energy expenditure, body composition, insulin sensitivity, exercise capacity, and insulin signaling in the whole animal, to the performance of metabolic, biochemical, and molecular studies in primary and immortal cell culture models of relevance to metabolic diseases.
