Jonathan Z. Long
Assistant Professor of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory studies the molecular pathways that control mammalian energy homeostasis. We focus on the dynamic chemical signals that integrate environmental cues with metabolic tissue function. What are the identities of these signals? How do their levels change in response to physiologic energy stressors? Where are they made? What cell types or tissues do they act on? To answer these questions, we use mass spectrometry-based technologies as discovery tools. We combine these tools with classical biochemical and genetic techniques in cellular and animal models. Our goal is to discover new molecules and signaling pathways that regulate organismal energy metabolism. Ultimately, we seek to translate our discoveries into therapeutic opportunities for metabolic and other chronic diseases.
