The aim of this project is to investigate programming effects of carbohydrates on metabolic health in preclinical studies.
MSc topics within this project include molecular physiological, biochemical, immunohistochemical and analytical analyses.4.
MSc topics within this project include molecular physiological, biochemical, immunohistochemical and analytical analyses. Hypoxic Effects on Energy Metabolism Obesity is associated with an increased adipose tissue mass.
Due to the expansion of the adipose tissue, oxygen is not able to reach all adipocytes thereby creating a local hypoxic environment at tissue level.
Eliot-Pearson faculty and students use a strengths-based approach in our research, practice, and teaching.
We value diversity and are committed to pursuing equity and justice in our work and in the world.
For MSc students, we offer possibilities to participate directly in physiological studies with humans and animals.
Other thesis research focus on cell studies and in-depth analysis of samples from human and animal studies using a variety of biochemical, molecular biological and histological methods for comprehensive mechanistic and physiological interpretation.
It is well known that the gestational period is important for nutritional programming, but also the transition period between lactation and solid foods is important.
However, little is known on the role of specific nutrients, especially carbohydrates.
