While diabetes is characterized by hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia, the metabolic implications on insulin-independent tissues of the increase in nutrient availabilities is unclear. Our lab uses liquid chromatography mass-spectrometry to investigate the underlying metabolic changes that lead to microvascular disease processes, especially in the kidney. I use a variety of metabolomic tools tp study the impact of post translational modifications in regulating kidney metabolism in diabetes.
