Dr. Gregory Steinberg is a professor in the Department of Medicine, and Co-Director of McMaster's Centre for Metabolism, Obesity and Diabetes Research. He holds the Canada Research Chair in Metabolism and Obesity, and the J. Bruce Duncan Chair in Metabolic Diseases. Dr. Steinberg’s research focuses on understanding molecular pathways controlling the metabolism of fat and sugars, and how endocrine factors such as serotonin and growth differentiating factor 15 (GDF15) regulate these effects. His translational research program has revealed novel mechanisms by which exercise, nutrition and therapeutics impact health with a major focus on inflammation and lipid metabolism. This information has been used to develop new preventative strategies and treatments for metabolic diseases including obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and some cancers.
