Department: Internal Medicine

Biography

Dr. Aubert is originally from France where she received her PhD. She then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Biology of Reproduction at the University Hospital of Lausanne in Switzerland. She further pursued her research in Insulin Signaling and Intracellular Trafficking at the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute in Florida. She joins UTSW Hypothalamic Research Division to unravel the mechanism of neurotransmitter and neuropeptide release critical for the central regulation of energy balance and glucose homeostasis. Dr. Aubert’s interests outside of science include her two kids, cooking and the great outdoors.
