Applied Bioenergetics Lab

Advancing Science for Healthier Life

Disturbances in cellular energy homeostasis are considered a key element of different conditions – from cardiometabolic and neurodegenerative diseases to athletic performance and aging, with improving bioenergetics remains a challenging task for both industry and academia.

Here in Applied Bioenergetics Lab, we strive to advance novel dietary supplements and similar therapeutics that protect and restore tissue bioenergetics and metabolism in health and disease, by joint our forces with different partners.

Our lab is one of the most active research units at UNS, publishing 12-15 scientific articles per year in premier journals. Stay informed about our activities by clicking on the links below!

Targeting the brain with hydrogen

February 5th, 2021|News|

Clinical applications of molecular hydrogen seem to favorably affect obesity-related metabolic biomarkers in peripheral tissues, yet whether H2 directly tackles obesity pathways in the brain remains elusive. We summarized several molecular targets in the hypothalamus and beyond that could be altered by H2 gas in obesity in a new paper just published in Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism.

Docking studies on creatine and GAA

January 1st, 2021|News|

Our paper on comparative molecular docking studies on creatine and guanidinoacetic acid (GAA) has been published in Journal of Chemical Research. Docking and density functional theory studies are carried out for muscle creatine kinase, and the changes in the geometries of the ligands before and after binding to the enzyme are investigated.
