Adam Rauckhorst receives ADA grant

Dr. Adam Rauckhorst, Postdoctoral Fellow in the Taylor Laboratory, received a new American Diabetes Association (ADA) grant entitled “Regulation of hepatic glucose metabolism by a candidate mitochondrial glutamine carrier.” The goal of this proposal is to use novel genetically engineered mice harboring a liver specific deletion of the mitochondrial glutamine carrier (QC1) to study its function during the progression of Type 2 Diabetes (T2D).  Successful completion of the proposed research will generate new knowledge on the function of QC1 and its role in hyperglycemia during T2D.
