Laboratory of Lipids and Chronobiology
Abdehalim Azzi, PhD
THE SCOPE OF THE RESEARCH
Dr. Azzi’s lab is interested in understanding the role of phosphoinositide signaling in regulation of circadian metabolic processes. The main aim of the research is to examine how daily spatiotemporal variations in phosphoinositides affect daily carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. The lab focuses currently on two system models, the 5-phosphatase SHIP2 and the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase isoform γ (PI3K-C2γ).
