Brooks P. Leitner

While at the National Institutes of Health in Dr. Kong Chen's Laboratory, I worked on creating a map of human brown adipose tissue (BAT), and exploring the capacity for BAT amounts and metabolic activity. I am now an MD/PhD Candidate at Yale University School of Medicine, pursuing both a medical degree and a PhD in Cellular and Molecular Physiology.
