The Baskin Lab investigates the crossroads of transcriptional regulation and metabolism. We focus on the identification and study of novel secreted proteins from the heart, called cardiomyokines. Our goal is to understand how and when metabolically active proteins are transcribed and secreted by the heart, and how they regulate systemic metabolism.
