    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr Bajpeyi currently serves as the head of the Skeletal Muscle Metabolism Laboratory and also holds joint appointments with Department of Biological Sciences at UTEP and the Pennington Biomedical Research Center (PBRC), in Baton Rouge, LA. The work in the Skeletal Muscle Metabolism Laboratory under the direction of Dr. Bajpeyi focuses on gaining a better understanding of the underlying molecular mechanisms relevant to metabolic diseases such as obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus, and to improve our understanding of the effects of diet and exercise training on obesity and type 2 diabetes. Specifically, his lab studies the interactions between insulin signaling, intramyocellular lipid (IMCL), lipid droplet associated proteins, and mitochondrial bioenergetics using primary skeletal muscle cell culture models.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
