Linran Zhou

Institut Pasteur de Bangui


heads the Metabolism, Genes, and Environment Group and holds a secondary appointment in the NIEHS Epigenetics and Stem Cell Biology Laboratory. The long-term goal of the Metabolism, Genes, and Environment Group is to understand the signal transduction that coordinates the gene-environment interaction in biological processes associated with metabolic homeostasis, and investigate how dysregulation of this interplay contributes to pathogenesis of metabolic diseases and aging.

Research Interest

The role of SIRT1 in transcriptional responses, particularly nuclear receptor mediated signaling The role of SIRT1 in metabolic diseases associated with aging The regulation of SIRT1’s activity in response to various environmental, nutritional, and hormonal cues


  • Current projects: Investigate the function of hepatic and intestinal SIRT1 in lipid metabolism Study the role of SIRT1 in age-associated metabolic diseases Understand the molecular mechanisms underlying the phosphorylation regulation of SIRT1 Identification of other signaling pathways regulated by sirtuins
