About the Lab:
Cellular metabolism fuels all biological processes. Metabolic dysfunction underlies the basis of many diseases including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, inflammation, and aging. Systemic homeostasis is achieved through coordinated metabolic regulation among different cells and multiple tissues & organs. The long-term goal of the Ruan laboratory is to elucidate molecular mechanisms underlying the intercellular communication in metabolic and immune systems.
We currently conduct an integrated program in three major directions.
The University of Minnesota, founded in the belief that all people are enriched by understanding, is dedicated to the advancement of learning and the search for truth; to the sharing of this knowledge through education for a diverse community; and to the application of this knowledge to benefit the people of the state, the nation, and the world.
