Grantee in the News: Satchidananda Panda’s Research in Cell Metabolism on How the Liver Responds So Quickly to Food View MoreBACK

On February 6th 2018, Cell Metabolism published research co-authored by 2014 Julie Martin Mid-Career Award in Aging Research recipient, Satchidananda Panda, Ph.D. 

In “The RNA-Binding Protein NONO Coordinates Hepatic Adaptation to Feeding,” Dr. Panda’s research on how the liver responds to food so quickly through RNA-binding protein NONO is highlighted.

Public.com also picked up on this research, where Dr. Panda states: “The switch from fasting to feeding is a very quick switch and our physiology has to adapt to it in the right time frame. Now we know how our body quickly handles that extra rush of sugar.”

The original research is available by subscription only here, but a press release can be read here.

Satchidananda Panda, Ph.D. is a Professor of the Regulatory Biology Laboratory at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies.
