Dr. Cai's research has centered on studying the interface of neuroendocrinology and immunology in the molecular and physiological pathogenesis of diabetes and the underlying metabolic syndrome. These efforts focus on the integrative connections among metabolism, immunology, neuroscience and endocrinology, which represent a foundation in linking a variety of epidemic factors (such as overnutrition and aging) to diabetes and pre-diabetic metabolic syndrome (such as glucose intolerance, insulin resistance, obesity, and hypertension). These efforts utilize state-of-the-art cell and molecular biological approaches that include genetic animal models in addition to physiological, neuroscience and endocrine methodologies. These studies are providing important new information for understanding of the molecular, cellular and physiological events in the etiology of metabolic syndrome and aging, hoping to help offer new therapeutic strategies against various deleterious diseases from these conditions.
