Rodent and Lower Species Metabolic Phenotyping

Mice and rats provide irreplaceable models of human Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and obesity, fatty liver, beta cell failure and expansion, etc. They permit studies that cannot be performed in humans, such as gene knockout models. Multiple investigators in the DOMI have world-class expertise in developing and studying mouse genetic models, rat models as well as drosophila (fruit fly) and zebrafish models of all of the above.
