Basic Laboratory Skills / Majoring in Biological Sciences, Biochemistry
The Nutrient Metabolism Lab, located on Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale campus, provides research opportunities for highly motivated students with strong interest in human metabolism, starting in Summer 2019. The main focus of the lab is on human obesity. We are investigating the metabolism in skeletal muscle of humans with obesity because abnormalities specifically in muscle protein metabolism are linked to metabolic dysregulation, ultimately contributing to Type 2 Diabetes. Interested students are expected to commit about 2 days/week and assist with procedures related to the overall research. Students are expected to develop their own research project, which it can ultimately serve as their Honors Thesis project.
