Personal Overview

Dr. Tuvdendorj's passion is stable isotope tracer techniques that allows one to measure in vivo kinetics of different substrates (e.g., proteins, lipids and glucose). Through studies of both animals and humans her research focus is to understand the relationship between substrate kinetics and insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and diabetes related diseases. A special interest of her research is a connection between adipose tissue morphology, triglyceride kinetics and insulin resistance related pathophysiological conditions.
