Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases
Our major research goals reflect our expertise in genetic regulation of endocrine and neural tissues including pituitary and placenta, endocrine-related cancers, and heart failure. There is a current emphasis on regulation of metabolism and understanding the pathophysiology associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. 

The current Head of Division is Dr. Peter Zahradka. Laboratories engaged in the research reside on both the 4th floor of the Basic Medical Sciences Building on the Bannatyne Campus and at the at the St. Boniface Hospital Research Centre (SBHRC), which includes the Canadian Centre for Agri-Food Research in Health and Medicine (insert link).

The Division includes 13 Professors and Adjunct Professors that are eligible to train students in the Department of Physiology.

Former students are now working in academia, areas of health delivery and service, as well as in the private sector.
