The main focus of Victoria Vieira-Potter’s laboratory is how behavioral (e.g., diet, exercise, environmental toxin exposure) and biological (e.g., aging, hormonal changes) factors influence metabolic function, specifically via modulation of the immuno-physiology of adipose (i.e., fat) tissue.

Specific areas of interest are the relationship between white adipose tissue (WAT) inflammation and systemic metabolic function (e.g., insulin resistance and fatty liver), how diet and exercise affect body composition and WAT inflammation, how estrogen loss and estrogen receptor signaling affect WAT metabolic function, and sex differences in WAT metabolic function.
