Arany lab: Everything Cardiovascular Metabolism


The lab focuses on cardiovascular metabolism. Such unfocused focus has led us to study a wide range of projects in the heart, liver, fat, and many other tissues, and has led us to use all techniques we can get out hands on, including human genetics, genetically engineered mouse models, cell culture, metabolomics, in vivo isotope metabolic tracing, and many more. In essence, the lab aims to ask fundamental questions within the (wide) space of cardiovascular metabolism, and leverages all available state-of-the-art approaches to do so.
