Charlene Diepenbroek’s research focuses on the relationship between the excessive intake of the combination of saturated fat and sucrose and obesity and Type 2 diabetes. Her aims are, firstly, to investigate how dietary composition affects glucose metabolism and, secondly, to study the role played by the shell region of the nucleus accumbens, an area of the brain that forms part of the corticolimbic system, in glucose metabolism.
