Research description

  • Acute and chronic metabolic effects of melatonin
  • Glucose homeostasis is under circadian control through both endocrine and intracellular mechanisms with several lines of evidence suggesting that melatonin impairs glucose homeostasis. We investigate whether acute and long-term melatonin administration affects insulin sensitivity, glucose-stimulated insulin secretion, and the incretin effect.

Future research plans

  • Following my PhD, I plan to specialize in endocrinology while I continue to do metabolic research through my international collaboration partners.
