Séminaire hebdomadaire UGSF - Dr Jonas Treebak - 23 novembre 2018 - C9 - Salle André Verbert

SÉMINAIRE HEBDOMADAIRE DE L’UGSF


"Role of skeletal muscle O-GlcNAc transferase for energy homeostasis and insulin sensitivity"

Animé par : Dr Jonas Treebak, Group Leader at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research, University of Copenhagen
Invité de l’Equipe : "Glycobiologie des maladies liées au stress", Stéfania MACCARI , de l’UMR 8576 - Université de Lille

Résumé :

Dr. Treebak obtained his PhD in 2009 from University of Copenhagen on the topic of skeletal muscle glucose metabolism. In early 2011, and following a short postdoc at University of Copenhagen, he was appointed Assistant Professor and Group Leader at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research, University of Copenhagen. In 2014 he was promoted to Associate Professor and has continued his work on energy metabolism skeletal muscle and liver. In general, the research activities of the Treebak lab are directed towards interrogating the signaling pathways controlling cellular and whole body glucose and lipid homeostasis in cell-based and animal models. To resolve the physiological role of genes, proteins, and pathways that regulate insulin action and adiposity, we use transgenic animals harboring mutant and wild-type forms of candidate genes or knockout deletions. We are developing in vitro and in vivo methods to assess the functional role of novel targets in type 2 diabetes and obesity pathogenesis as well as performing clinical and experimental studies for genotype/phenotype interactions to identify diabetes risk and mechanisms underlying diabetes pathogenesis.
