Jordan Fuqua discusses how autophagy and proteolytic processes are regulated in skeletal muscle, specifically looking at ULK1 and ULK2 and their roles in maintaining skeletal muscle homeostasis, morphology, protein aggregate degradation and autophagy.
Leigh Goedeke, PhD reviews spontaneous nonhuman primate (NHP) models of NAFLD and metabolic syndrome as a more clinically-relevant preclinical study platform.
Andrew Puca, PhD discusses techniques for optimizing preclinical diabetes research in spontaneously diabetic NHPs, with a focus on stress free assessments of glucose measurement and response using continuous glucose monitoring and the banana tolerance test.
