Kevin D. Hall, Ph.D.
My laboratory investigates how metabolism and the brain adapt in response to a variety of interventions to diet and physical actvity. We perform experiments in both humans and rodents to better understand the complex mechanisms regulating macronutrient metabolism, body composition, and energy expenditure. A unique aspect of our laboratory involves the development of mathematical models to quantitatively describe, explain, integrate, and predict our experimental results.
