Debbie Muoio is Associate Professor in the Departments of Medicine and Pharmacology & Cancer Biology at Duke University, and Director of Basic Science Research for the Duke Molecular Physiology Institute. Her laboratory investigates metabolic networks that link lifestyle factors such as overnutrition and physical inactivity to cardiometabolic disease. Her research program features a translational approach that combines work in animal and cell-based models with human studies, using genetic engineering, molecular physiology and mass spectrometry-based metabolomics as tools to understand the interplay between mitochondrial energetics, insulin action and metabolic health. Dr. Muoio’s laboratory is supported by awards from the National Institutes of Health and the American Diabetes Association.
