E. Matthew Morris, PhD

Research Assistant Professor
University of Kansas Medical Center
Kansas City, Kansas

Dr. Matt Morris investigates the role of peripheral energy metabolism in the development of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. His work centers on how the function of the primary energy producing cellular bodies, mitochondria, can impact tissue function and ultimately systemic health. The current focus is how liver mitochondrial function can, through neural pathways to the brain, influence high fat diet-induced weight gain via changes in food intake and storage of dietary fat.
