Personal profile

My research in a nutshell

I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow in the laboratory of Dr William Cawthorn at the University of Edinburgh Centre for Cardiovascular Science. Our laboratory aims to identify the mechanisms responsible for marrow adipose tissue (MAT) formation and its function. Marrow adipose tissue is situated within the bones of the skeleton and intriguingly, during caloric restriction, MAT increases unlike adipose depots outwith the bone. Indeed, MAT also increases in numerous clinical conditions such as osteoporosis, type 1 diabetes, estrogen deficiency, aging and in response to glucocorticoid treatment. These clinical findings suggest that MAT has a role in global homeostasis.
