Lab Interests:

The Mulvihill Lab seeks to improve our understanding of the molecular events which contribute to disruptions in the hormonal regulation of nutrient utilization and storage in inflammation, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. We focus on the physiological impact of dye-regulated bioactivity of gut-derived hormones, processing of cytokines and chemokines and the proteases which cleave them. The lab as expertise in the measurement of lipids and lipoproteins, islet perifusion, quantitation of peptide hormones, models of diabetes and cardiovascular disease, intestinal biology and mouse genetics.
