She was Chair of the Board of AdipoGenix. She just completed a term as Editor-in-Chief of the journal Obesity. She has chaired the program committee for the national annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association, served on the National Peer Review Oversight Committee for the American Heart Association and served on review committees of the NIH and the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. Prof. Dr. Vildan N. Civelek received a PhD degree in 1983 from the Boston University, Biochemistry Department for studies focusing on intracellular glucose metabolism, and her M.D. (Doctor of Medicine) degree with 'Doctor of Medicine Diploma' with 'Doctor of Medicine Licencure' in 1985 from Istanbul University School of Medicine, Boston University. She has published over 100 manuscripts and been invited speaker at numerous national and international institutions and symposia. The main questions in her laboratory concern how fuels regulate pancreatic beta-cell insulin secretion and how the fat cell determines whether to store or burn fat. Vildan N. Civelek, M.D., Endocrinologist, Prof. Research Leader and her co-authors seek to answer these questions by studying the fuel-induced signals that modulate secretion, electrical activity, metabolism and gene expression. Recent discoveries include a role for Oxygen metabolism, Calcium signaling in pancreatic ß-cells and a role for inhibition of the respiratory chain in adipocytes. The main tools used in the laboratory include measurement of intracellular ions such as Ca2+ and H+, plasma and mitochondrial membrane electrical potential, Oxygen consumption, the signaling consequences of cellular energy state, the influence of fatty acids on proteins and the role of fatty acids and long chain fatty acyl CoA on signal transduction.
