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.
