Metabolic diseases result from a disruption in the body's homeostatic mechanisms regulating the energy balance - the process of getting or using energy from food intake. More than 100 million people in the US alone suffer two of the most prevalent diseases, diabetes and obesity.
Treatments vary depending on the type of metabolic disease. At InCube, we are currently focused on developing new approaches for addressing both diabetes and obesity. Click on the links to find out more about our work in these areas.
