Liver adaptive stress signalling and systemic metabolic control

v/ Dr. Adam J. Rose, PhD, Molecular Metabolic Control, German Cancer Research Center, Heidelberg, Germany.

Abstract

Studies suggest that intermittent stressors can promote positive adaptations that retard ageing related disease such as type 2 diabetes. Here, the role of liver-specific molecular events will be discussed in the context of certain nutritional stressors such as fasting and dietary protein dilution, and their impact upon the maintenance of systemic metabolic control.

Research profile

Dr. Adam J. Rose completed his PhD at Deakin University, Melbourne and then his first Post-Doctoral fellowship at Copenhagen University, Denmark, while studying the role of calcium signalling processes in skeletal muscle metabolism and exercise-adaptation. Afterwards, he took on a posting as a senior scientist, and subsequently as sub-group leader, at the Molecular Metabolic Control Department, German Cancer Research Center, Heidelberg, Germany, where he studies the role of liver stress-signalling pathways in adaptive metabolic control.
