Role of fat sensing in the altered feeding behavior and metabolic phenotype of Prader-Willi syndrome

Funded Year: 2022

Our project aims to test the hypothesis that alterations in certain specific lipid sensors and mediators in the hypothalamus may contribute to the disrupted feeding behavior and the altered metabolic phenotype associated with PWS at different stages of postnatal development. These studies will try to reverse the metabolic alterations observed...
