DescriptionThe Institute of Metabolic Disorders at Medical Diagnostic Laboratories, LLC, is a basic research division that focuses on targeting lipid-related diseases. Approximately 50% of the worlds population is obese, and this is associated with severe cardiovascular pathologies. Our goal is to identify small molecule modulators designed to target obesity. The Institute is made up of several PhD and MS level scientists. The Institute has mentored many undergraduate interns of a period of several years.
