Lori Zeltser, PhD

Dr. Zeltser is an Assistant Professor in the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center and the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology at Columbia University Medical Center. Her laboratory studies the development of hypothalamic circuits regulating food intake and body composition. The Zeltser lab is focused on characterizing two types of developmental processes that could, in principle, impart persistent influences on metabolic phenotypes: maternal influences on the differentiation of key neuronal populations in the embryonic and neonatal hypothalamus, and the establishment of defended set-points for phenotypes related to body weight and adiposity during the peri-pubertal period.
