As a physician scientist, Dr. Davis conducts research in the areas of obesity and diabetes in both basic science and clinical settings. Broadly, the Davis lab is interested in pancreatic beta cell biology. We aim to better understand the mechanisms underlying beta cell proliferation and apoptosis. In the clinic, Dr. Davis investigates the mechanism that lead to improved insulin sensitivity and weight loss in patients that receive Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery.
