CAROLINE WEE LAB

Neuromodulatory Control of Appetite and Food Choice

We leverage the larval zebrafish model to gain a holistic understanding of the networks of

genes, microbes, molecules, and neurons

linking dietary intake and other environmental factors to appetite and food decision-making.

We aim to generate new scientific knowledge that will address societal challenges

and advance human health and well-being.


We are located at the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (A*STAR), Singapore

in the Division of Neurometabolism in Health and Diseases.
