Brief Description of Research Interest :
Rachel Perry, Ph.D. is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Yale University School of Medicine. Rachel earned her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, her Ph.D. in Cellular & Molecular Physiology, and performed her postdoctoral training in Medicine/Endocrinology, all in the laboratory of Dr. Gerald Shulman. Her research interests include the mechanism(s) by which hyperinsulinemia and obesity drive tumor growth, the use of stable isotope tracer methods to measure tissue-specific metabolic flux rates, the ability of inflammation to alter insulin sensitivity and predispose to hepatocellular cancer, the ability of the microbiome to drive hyperinsulinemia, insulin resistance, and obesity, and the development of novel agents to intervene in insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, NASH, and cancer. As Co-Director of Yale's Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Center Physiology Core, Rachel assists investigators worldwide in performing clamp studies, glucose tolerance tests, and metabolic cage analysis to assess the metabolic phenotypes of their transgenic mice.
