The Laboratory of Barbara Corkey, PhD
Boston University Medical Center


Dr. Corkey’s laboratory focuses on the metabolic regulation of signal transduction and energy metabolism in fat cells, β-cells, and human fibroblasts.  She and her colleagues study fuel-stimulated insulin secretion by the pancreatic β-cell, fuel partitioning in rat adipocytes, metabolic effects of oxidative stress in murine hepatocytes, cytokine signaling, and calcium transients in human fibroblasts from patients with inborn errors of fatty acid oxidation and Type I diabetes.
