Avelino De Leon

I'm a second year PhD student at the University of Chicago studying Molecular Metabolism and Nutrition. My lab studies adipose tissue (fat) and is currently interested in the effects of sleep, diet, and bariatric surgery on the body's response to insulin (insulin sensitivity). I'm also interested in the effects of these factors on endocannabinoid signaling in adipose tissue.
