Biography

Dr Gavin Bewick's research interests are focused in the field of Obesity and Diabetes. He has a well-established reputation, built over the last 20 years, in studying the regulation of metabolism with a particular interest in gut hormones. His research has made important contributions to our understanding of the neuroendocrine and enteroendocrine control of appetite and body weight regulation. A key current interest of the Bewick lab is the role of the gut epithelium in the control of metabolism and the pathophysiology of diabetes and obesity. The lab is exploring the roles of diet, the microbiome and immune signaling in shaping the gut epithelium in health and disease. To do this the Bewick lab uses both pre-clinical and translational approaches encompassing methods ranging from organoid culture to single-cell transcriptomics to physiological studies.
