Example Experiments

The following are examples of experiments that our core team has performed:

1. Thermogenesis: cold temperature challenge

2. Thermogenesis: beta-adrenergic agonist activation of mice housed at thermoneutral temperatures

3. Pharmacologic induction of metabolic rate (T3)

4. Diet-induced obesity

5. Optogenetic stimulation of food intake

6. Chemogenetic stimulation of metabolism

7. Induction of torpor

8. Quantitation rates of substrate oxidation in vivo using stable isotope tracing

9. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM)

10. Wheel running

11. Germ-free mice

12. Infrared thermal imaging (FLIR)

13. Body Composition
