Brief description The liver secretes proteins to alter metabolism in other tissues of the body. Fatty liver is a major feature of obesity and type 2 diabetes. This project aims to understand how fatty liver changes protein secretion and how this impacts on metabolic processes. The outcomes of this project will be the identification of protein biomarkers of fatty liver and the prediction of insulin resistance development in other tissues of the body.
