Our Research Center
The Al Batran Laboratory is located within the "Faculté de Pharmacie de l'université de Montréal" in the room # 3168
Our brand-new laboratory features many state-of-the-art equipment and technology which we use to study obesity and energy metabolism. Our team consist of postdocs and graduate students who perform many experiments routinely with precision and accuracy. Here are some of techniques that we use in the lab.
Generating tissue specific knockout mice
Employing different dietary to induce insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes
Utilizing in vivo isotopic tracing to assess metabolic fluxes
Evaluating in vivo energy metabolism and energy expenditure using metabolic chamber
Assessing glucose homeostasis via glucose and insulin tolerance testing (GTTs/ITTs)
Measuring exercise performance in mice using voluntary wheel running and forced exercise treadmill
All of the previously stated experiments can be performed at our laboratory.
