Sudip Bajpeyi
Professor, Kinesiology - Interdisciplinary Health Sciences

Dr Bajpeyi currently serves as the Director of the Metabolic Nutrition and Exercise Research (MiNER) Laboratory. The work in the MiNER 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 physical activity on obesity and type 2 diabetes. Alongside conducting human clinical intervention, Dr. Bajpeyi's lab also studies the interactions between insulin signaling, intramyocellular lipid (IMCL), lipid droplet associated proteins, and mitochondrial bioenergetics in human skeletal muscle.
