Mentor Update

Introducing Dr. Zeynep Madak Erdogan

Zeynep Madak Erdogan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health and Nutrition at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and she is also a MiOra mentor (www.miora.org). Dr Erdogan’s NIFA and Pfizer Inc. funded lab is studying the molecular mechanisms involved in the role of estrogens on healthy and diseased physiology including breast cancer and obesity. Her recent findings show that in the ovariectomized obese mouse model, dietary licorice root powder supplement reduced weight gain and fat deposition (Mol Nutrition Food Res 2016). We thank Dr Erdogan for being a MiOra mentor and will continue to follow her research!
