Purdue University researcher Kim Buhman will discuss her work in a 4 p.m., March 13 lecture in the Beadle Center, room N172. The talk, part of the Biochemistry/Redox Biology Center Seminar Series, is free and open to the public.

Buhman, an associate professor of nutrition science at Purdue, will discuss "Intestinal Triglyceride Transport and Metabolism: Storage and Secretion."

Current research in Buhman's laboratory is focused on better understanding the process of dietary fat absorption. The long-term goal of her researchis to identify novel factors that regulate dietary fat sensing, metabolism and absorption that may be exploited for preventive and therapeutic interventions for obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Buhman completed her doctorate in nutrition at Purdue University and postdoctoral fellowships in lipid metabolism at the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
