Daniel Lark, PhD
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Department of Molecular Physiology & Biophysics
Dr. Daniel Lark is interested in understanding how molecular metabolism, particularly at the mitochondrion, impacts health and disease. Dr. Lark’s work has been supported by fellowships from NIH-NIDDK and the American Heart Association. As a postdoctoral fellow in the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, he has utilized dietary and genetic interventions to better understand how exercise and overnutrition alter glucose and lipid metabolism in obesity. Most recently, Dr. Lark has used voluntary wheel running and indirect calorimetry to better understand the regulation of whole body energy balance in mice.
