Research Interests

Dr. Harris studies the mechanistic intersection between bariatric surgery, metabolism, and aging. Using complex surgical models in mice, his current lab efforts focus on how bariatric surgery effects the process of cellular senescence and by doing so, mitigates metabolic diseases and extends healthspan.

Dr. Harris received a one-year pilot grant from Washington University’s Diabetes Research Center to explore potential treatments for Type 2 diabetes. Read more here.
