Clair Crewe, PhD

Assistant Professor, Cell Biology & Physiology

The Crewe lab uses transgenic mouse lines, cell culture and biochemistry to understand extracellular vesicle (EV)-mediated signaling during homeostatic and pathologic metabolic regulation. We are focused on understanding this in the context of obesity and type 2 diabetes with a particular emphasis on adipocyte-derived EVs. We are particularly excited about a subpopulation of EVs from adipocytes carry damaged mitochondria which are transferred to other organs.
