Dr. Randy Seeley is Professor of Surgery at the University of Michigan School of Medicine. Prior to that, Dr. Seeley was Professor of Medicine and held the Donald C. Harrison Endowed Chair at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine where he also served as the Director of the Cincinnati Diabetes and Obesity Center (CDOC).
Randy's scientific work has focused on the actions of various peripheral hormones in the CNS that serve to regulate food intake, body weight and the levels of circulating fuels. In particular, he has focused upon the numerous hypothalamic and G.I. peptides and their associated receptors that influence both energy intake as well as peripheral metabolic processes with a focus on developing new treatment strategies for both obesity and diabetes. His recent work has included a focus on identifying the molecular underpinnings of the potent effects of bariatric surgery on weight and metabolism.
