Research Interests

Dr. Cummings' research uses state-of-the-art tools and technologies to understand the molecular basis of metabolic disease, with a focus on bile acid and glucagon-like peptide-1 signaling. The aim is to identify and develop new therapeutics for these diseases, whose prevalence is growing at an alarming rate. To achieve these goals, her lab is studying surgical, nutritional and pharmaceutical approaches using a combination of mouse modeling, molecular biology, biochemical and genomics applications.
