Dr. Makimura is interesting in investigating the neuroendocrine regulation of body weight and its associated co-morbidities. Dr. Makimura has previously performed investigations using mice models of obesity and more recently has initiated clinical investigations into the role of growth hormone in human obesity and cardiovascular disease. Dr. Makimura is also interested in the the use of non-invasive imaging techniques to study the role of mitochondria in mediating metabolic complications associated with obesity.
