Gilbertson Lab @ UCF

We are looking for graduate students to join us at the UCF College of Medicine - look here & then email Dr. Gilbertson for more info!  

Starting July 2018, the Gilbertson Laboratory is now at the University of Central Florida College of Medicine.  We will be in the Department of Internal Medicine and located in the Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences Building
 on the Lake Nona Campus of UCF
We are furiously setting up as we speak and this site, like our lives at the moment, is under renovation! 

Our research is focused on the investigation of the mechanisms the body uses to recognize nutrients & how this process is regulated by nutritional need. To accomplish these goals, we study the way nutrients including fats, carbohydrates and minerals are detected by chemosensory cells in the oral cavity and in several nutrient-sensitive, post-ingestive organs. Our laboratory studies the involvement of chemosensory pathways in several nutrient-related disorders including diabetes, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. The research in our laboratory spans from genes through behavior with expertise in molecular biology, proteomics, electrophysiology, imaging, biochemistry and analysis of behavior.
