Columbia honors Philipp Scherer for helping to define body fat as major endocrine organ
Date:11/18/2013

in the laboratory of Lori Sussel, PhD, associate professor of genetics and development.

In the past decade, research has revealed that bile acidswell known for their role in the absorption of dietary fatsalso activate multiple receptors and regulate glucose, lipid, and cholesterol metabolism. The Haeusler lab has recently found that an increase in certain bile acids is associated with progressive insulin resistance in humans. Dr. Bertaggia will investigate how bile acids may promote diabetes progression and how they may be therapeutically targeted. Dr. Bertaggia will be a postdoctoral research scientist in the laboratory of Rebecca Haeusler, PhD, assistant professor of pathology & cell biology, a member of the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center, and a 2010 Naomi Berrie Fellow.

Awards Given at the 15th Annual Frontiers in Diabetes Research Conference

The awards ceremony took place at the 15th annual Frontiers in Diabetes Research Conference on November 16, 2013, in the Russ Berrie Medical Science Pavilion at Columbia University Medical Center.

The Naomi Berrie Award for Outstanding Achievement in Diabetes Research was established by the Russell Berrie Foundation in 2000. For more information about the annual Frontiers Conference and a list of past award recipients, visit: http://nbdc.cumc.columbia.edu/frontiers.
