Dr. Barbara Corkey is Emeritus Professor of Medicine and Biochemistry. Dr. Corkey’s work focuses on the metabolic regulation of signal transduction and energy metabolism in fat cells, ß-cells, and human fibroblasts. She and her colleagues have been studying fuel-stimulated insulin secretion by the pancreatic ß-cell; fuel partitioning in rat adipocytes; cytokine signaling; and Ca2+ transients in human fibroblasts from patients with inborn errors of fatty acid oxidation and Type 1 diabetes.
