About the Abizaid Lab

Welcome to the Abizaid Lab. We are a group of researchers and students in the Department of Neuroscience at Carleton University in Canada, focusing primarily on the hormone ghrelin and its related systems, looking at such phenomena as obesity, diabetes, stress, and circadian rhythms. We also conduct research in other areas, including BPA and the FTO gene. Our research includes both behavioural and molecular components, and our lab consists of undergraduates and graduates under the supervision of Dr. Alfonso Abizaid.
