Dr. Li has been investigating mechanisms that modulate glucose homeostasis since she was a Ph.D student in 2000. She has used electrophysiological, and cellular and molecular approaches to investigate how genetic and environmental factors regulate glucose homeostasis and insulin sensitivity. In the past few years, she used several animal models including trauma and hemorrhage, and learned-helplessness mouse models to understand how acute physiological and psychosocial stresses impair glucose homeostasis and induce insulin resistance. In the past 18 months, Dr. Li has been working on the impacts of early life stress on the development of obesity. Dr. Li has made a number of important original contributions in understanding the mechanisms in these two field and has more than 20 peer-reviewed publications reflecting her research achievements. She is now expanding these studies into human studies. The objective of this study is to determine the impacts of psychological stress including early life stress (with and without depression) and acute stress on obesity and diabetes risk by examining the roles of immune system and the HPA axis. The preliminary data are very promising, and this proposal will lay a critical foundation for a NIH grant application.

Dr. El Khouryâ€™s research interests have focused on the role of dietary proteins and functional ingredients/foods in the regulation of appetite, food intake, glycemia and metabolism in healthy individuals and individuals at risk for or with nutrition-related disorders including obesity, hyperinsulinemia and the metabolic syndrome. Dr. El Khoury has also worked in the fields of sports nutrition and infant nutrition through experiences in both academia and private industry.
"My diagnosis started with" Good Measurement is Know "in relation to the question" What's going on? ". Good diagnostics asks for the right technology that is present in the technologically high-quality and international renowned sample laboratory. "
Among other things, she was involved in the efficient operation of laboratory diagnostics. "This allows the patient to get a faster diagnosis and, on the other hand, efficient business management leads to the release of necessary space for innovation."
The Rijke advocates greater cooperation within the laboratory diagnostics in the Erasmus MC. "Laboratory diagnostics are becoming increasingly important, not just for the attending physician, but also for the patient, who no longer has to go to the hospital for all tests because he or she can carry them home with point-of-care equipment. "
The Department of Clinical Chemistry aims to be the forerunner in the development and implementation of new promising biomarkers, she says. An example of this is cortisol in main hair. "Main hair is a new analytical material for clinical chemical diagnostics. It is an interesting addition to the blood, urine and saliva used in the diagnostics."
