CICMD Member, Dr. Guillaume de Lartigue awarded a 2021 UF Excellence Award for Assistant Professors

The University of Florida has awarded Guillaume de Lartigue, Ph.D., with a 2021 Excellence Award for Assistant Professors — one of the university’s top awards for a junior faculty member.

De Lartigue serves as an assistant professor of pharmacodynamics in the UF College of Pharmacy. Prior to joining UF in 2018, he was an assistant professor of cellular and molecular physiology at the Yale School of Medicine. De Lartigue’s research focuses on the neurobiology of feeding, emphasizing the gut-brain communication. He is particularly interested in how internal states are sensed and disrupted in disease to reveal new methods for treating obesity and related conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.

In the early stage of his independent research career, de Lartigue has already served as principal investigator or co-principal investigator on eight National Institutes of Health grants and three foundation grants. His publication record features more than 40 peer-reviewed publications and book chapters, with several high-profile publications in the research journals Cell, Nature Metabolism and Nature Reviews Gastroenterology and Hepatology
