    A major focus of the Feldman Laboratory is to elucidate previously unrecognized paracrine and endocrine signaling pathways that regulate stem cell fate and differentiation decisions. We are particularly interested in identifying novel pathways that modulate body composition and metabolism. We apply molecular, cellular and in vivo approaches to define these physiological signals as well as examine how perturbations in these pathways can lead to diseases such as diabetes.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
