The overall goal of the Pei lab is to understand how different organs react to energy cues and communicate with each other to maintain whole-organism homeostasis in both physiological and pathological contexts.  Current research focus include: (1) Cardiac endocrinology: identification and functional study of heart-derived hormones in physiology and disease;  (2) Single-cell genomics to understand cardiac and metabolic biology and disease;  (3) Regulation of mitochondrial function important in metabolic disease.  We welcome postdoctoral fellows and (rotating) graduate students to join us in our endeavors.
