Dr. Guo has been working on the gene transcriptional regulation of metabolic homeostasis by insulin receptor substrate proteins (IRS) and Forkhead FoxO transcription factors with the hope of understanding how the signaling from insulin via IRS to FoxO proteins plays a key role in many fundamental cellular processes, including cellular growth and metabolism. His lab has taken a multidisciplinary approach in both cell- and animal- based experiments to investigate how different signals regulate FoxO and how dysregulation of the FoxO pathway is involved in the development of metabolic diseases. His work has been published in a number of journals including the Journal of Biological Chemistry, Endocrinology, Hypertension, Diabetes, Circulation Research, AJP, Molecular & Cellular Biology, Cell Metabolism, and Nature Medicine. Dr.Guos research has been funded by the American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association, and National Institute of Health.
