Stanley Andrisse, PhD
Howard University College of Medicine

My research investigates the intersecting pathways of different insulin resistant states. I am actively recruiting trainees and technicians (contact me). Dysregulated hepatic glucose metabolism plays a pivotal role in the pathophysiology of metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance. The pathways that regulate hepatic gluconeogenesis, glycogen synthesis, and glycogenolysis are complex. Increasing evidence from my work and others has revealed many intersecting pathways that influence the traditional PI3K/AKT insulin action pathway. Discovering these mechanistic interactions, using cutting-edge molecular technologies is the focus of my work. I will employ the use of animal models, cell culture models and clinical collaborations.
