Timothy Robert Koves
Associate Professor in Medicine

My research is focused on 1) understanding metabolic perturbations that occur in subpopulations of skeletal muscle mitochondria in response to a chronic high lipid environment, 2) identifying specific metabolites of lipid-induced mitochondrial stress that contribute to skeletal muscle insulin resistance and type II diabetes, and 3) understanding how mitochondrial adaptations in response to exercise confer protection against lipid-induced mitochondrial dysfunction.
