Research Involves

The rise in obesity over the past decade and its link to diabetes and cancer has increased interest in fat tissue biology. Therefore, Szabo's research focuses on the role of fat in a disease setting, by studying fat development from stem cells obtained from healthy, diabetic patients, obese patients or patients suffering from cancers.

The fat cells produced from sick versus healthy patients will be examined to gain a better understanding of the role of fat development in these devastating diseases; and will also provide an opportunity to identify new drug treatment approaches and cell source for soft-tissue reconstruction.
