Welcome to the Ruan Laboratory at UMN

The research in the Ruan laboratory is centered on understanding how metabolic homeostasis is maintained by the intercellular, inter-tissue, and inter-organ communication. We aim to define the pathological alterations of metabolic communication in diseases including obesity, diabetes, digestive disease, and inflammation. Ultimately, we hope to identify targets and to design therapeutics for these diseases.


We are grateful to all of our current and past funding sources!
