Sep 4 2014 - 2:00pm
UNSW Three Minute Thesis finalist Alexander Knights is researching how genes can influence health. 

Alexander has found that transgenic mice have higher levels of hormones that improve their metabolism and keep them thin, even on a high fat diet. 

Now his efforts are focused on understanding how these hormones work in the hope of one day developing better therapies for obesity and other metabolic disorders.
