Karpac, Jason Assistant Professor Assistant Professor


Our laboratory is broadly interested in the cellular and systemic (endocrine) adaptive signaling networks that regulate metabolic homeostasis, and subsequently affect the aging process. The laboratory primarily uses the fruit flyDrosophilaas model to investigate the function of these signaling networks at multiple levels of biological organization: from molecules, to cells and tissues, to tissue-tissue interactions, to whole organism physiology and aging.
