Mechanisms for the Post-exercise Improvement in Insulin Sensitivity

University Lecture

Event Details

Thursday, October 24, 2019
4:15-5:15 p.m.
By Greg Cartee, Professor of Movement Science, associate dean for research, and the director of the Muscle Biology Laboratory in the School of Kinesiology, University of Michigan.

The lecture will focus on understanding the processes that regulate insulin-stimulated glucose uptake by skeletal muscle is important because 1) muscle accounts for most insulin-mediated glucose disposal, and 2) muscle insulin resistance is a key defect in the progression to type 2 diabetes mellitus.
