Heart and Liver Disease: Deciphering Metabolic and Genetic Connections

June 13, 2013

The human genetic code is 99.9 percent identical. What makes people individuals, genetically speaking, equates to .1 percent of their individual genetic make-up and accounts for thousands of differentiations at the molecular level.  Deciphering those differentiations or polymorphisms and their involvement in the development of disease is the work of scientists like Karen Corbin, PhD, RD, and […]

New Genetic Approaches to Predict and Prevent Fatty Liver

December 20, 2012

When Karen Corbin, PhD, RD, first read the UNC Chapel Hill Nutrition Research Institute’s (NRI) mission- exploring nutritional individuality- she knew she’d found the place she could build her career. As a clinical dietitian, certified diabetes educator and co-director of preventive services at the Heart and Vascular Institute of Florida from 1998 to 2003, Corbin […]

A 45-minute vigorous exercise bout increases metabolic rate for 14 hours.

September 11, 2011

A 45-minute vigorous exercise bout increases metabolic rate for 14 hours. Knab AM1, Shanely RA, Corbin KD, Jin F, Sha W, Nieman DC. Abstract INTRODUCTION: The magnitude and duration of the elevation in resting energy expenditure after vigorous exercise have not been measured in a metabolic chamber. This study investigated the effects of inserting a 45-min vigorous cycling bout into […]
