Research

Dr. Bettaieb’s laboratory studies the molecular basis of metabolic diseases with a focus on Obesity, type 2 diabetes and their complications. The team investigates the metabolic and non-metabolic functions of key enzymes and signaling proteins, namely protein tyrosine phosphatases, protein kinases and hydrolases.  The long-term objectives are: (1) provide a better understanding of the molecular and genetic mechanisms contributing to the development of metabolic diseases. (2) Exploit novel genes and therapeutic strategies aiming at reducing the overall burden of these diseases.
