Welcome to the Schlegel Laboratory. Located in the Eccles Institute of Human Genetics on the University of Utah’s School of Medicine campus. We are a research enterprise focused on understanding metabolic disease, with particular attention to type 2 diabetes and dyslipidemia.
The Schlegel Laboratory at the University of Utah School of Medicine is a research environment focused on metabolic diseases. We use an array of methods from in vitro enzymology to human physiology to identify and characterize novel genes involved in glucose and lipid homeostasis. The lab’s main experimental models are mouse and zebrafish.
