The focus of research in the Lutter Laboratory is the bi-directional relationship between psychiatric disorders and metabolic diseases. In recent years, it has become increasingly recognized that a relationship exists between the development of certain psychiatric disorders, such as Major Depression, Anorexia Nervosa, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and metabolic disturbances. We combine approaches of biochemistry, neuroscience, and human genetics to answer fundamental questions about the causation and treatment of psychiatric disorders with an emphasis on metabolic signaling pathways.
