The Parks Lab is focused on addressing the question of how genetics and diet interact together to contribute to common metabolic diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Through the use of large-scale systems genetics studies we aim to identify and characterize biological pathways that can be harnessed to treat disease. Our work is interdisciplinary in nature and incorporates genetics, computational biology, molecular biology, and biochemistry.
