Introduction of Rhonda D. Kineman
Rhonda D. Kineman’s research interests include how growth hormone (GH) directly regulates hepatocyte metabolism, injury and repair in adults. Current projects include how GH interacts with insulin to regulate hepatic lipid and carbohydrate metabolism, as well as studies examining the direct effects of GH on pancreatic beta-cell function. They are also interested in how changes in the metabolic environment alter GH production and sensitivity. Up yet, her team has published more than 100 papers on the well known professional journals including Endocrinology, Diabetes, Oncogene and so on.
