Tissue-specific effects of insufficient sleep

The goal of this project is to develop expertise in circadian biology and the use of hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamps in conjunction with stable isotopes in people. The project is funded by a K01 to Dr. Broussard from the NIH/NIDDK with additional support from the Center for Women's Health Research at the University of Colorado Denver.
