Academic Interests

The Brady lab in the Kovler Diabetes Center has a long standing interest in studying adipocyte biology, energy metabolism and insulin sensitivity. The lab is currently focused on two collaborative transdisciplinary projects: 1) determining the impact of altered sleep quality, circadian behavior and bariatric on cellular and systemic insulin sensitivity in humans; 2) studying the role of chronic social isolation on mammary gland development, mammary adipose tissue biology and the progression of triple negative breast cancer in rodents.
