  • Research Fellow
  • Bethesda, MD USA


Cheryl Cero did her doctoral work at the University of Minnesota where she characterized the molecular mechanism of peptide TLQP-21 in regulating lipolysis in white adipocytes. She is now a Research Fellow in the NIDDK intramural program, in the lab of Aaron Cypess. Dr. Cero’s research focuses on (a) genetic and functional heterogeneity of human white and brown adipose tissue and (b) defining the signal transduction pathways involved in human brown adipocyte metabolism and thermogenesis.
