overview

Dr. Sun is an expert on \"hunger hormone\" ghrelin. She generated the first ghrelin knockout mice, and discovered ghrelin's novel roles in diabetes, thermogenesis and macrophage polarization. Her laboratory uses state-of-the-art tools to study ghrelin in energy sensing, intake, and expenditure. Her work suggests that ghrelin might be a promising drug target for obesity, diabetes, inflammation, and aging.
