Chen Chen

Professor Chen Chen is from School of Biomedical Sciences, The University of Queensland. His research focuses on the endocrinology and metabolism in obesity, diabetes, and aging. He was the main contributor to establish ion channels and signalling systems in regulation of pituitary hormone secretion. The research then moves into pathophysiology of metabolic disorders, such as obesity, diabetes, and related cardiomyopathy, liver diseases and reproductive dysfunction. Recently, his team established methods to evaluate pituitary and pancreatic islet hormone secretion pattern in mouse models of different metabolic conditions. With specific transgenic mouse models, his team studied interrelationship between different feeding condition, time-shifting, metabolic regulatory hormone pattern, weight control and reproductive biology. His research now concentrates on ghrelin-LEAP2-GHSR axis and the balance of growth hormone (GH) and insulin in pathological conditions. He has published over 300 original research papers, reviews and edited books on Neuroendocrinology, Diabetes, and GH-related topics.
