Fat has a bad reputation for its negative contribution to a host of diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. However, not all fat is created equally. The study of brown adipose tissue (BAT) is becoming a hot topic in the world of gene regulation, metabolic diseases, and in the exercise industry. Rising interest in brown adipose tissue research parallels the growing efforts to combat rising obesity rates in America. The exercise industry is interested in understanding BAT for weight loss and healthy lifestyle maintenance. BAT is a highly metabolically active tissue that converts food energy into heat, which subsequently regulates the...

Transcription factors mediate many essential processes. The role of transcription factors in mediating neuronal growth, function, and regeneration is not well known. It is particularly poorly understood how the development, branching, and regrowth of motor neurons are regulated. There is also little known about how transcription factors regulate dendrite (projections of neurons) and how this works in conjunction with axonal outgrowth and targeting.

Regulation of dendrite and axon positioning is necessary to define a neuron’s connections and is controlled by a combination of guidance receptors, adhesion molecules, and cytoskeletal regulators. The lab of Dr....
