Dr. de Lartigue graduated with a BS(hons) in Medical Biochemistry from the University of London in 2002. He received a Wellcome Trust PhD studentship, and joined the lab Prof. Graham Dockray FRS at the University of Liverpool working on determining the mechanisms of vagal afferent gut-brain signaling in the regulation of food intake. He moved to the lab of Dr. Helen Raybould at UC Davis in 2009 where he demonstrated that gut-brain signaling is disrupted in response to chronic ingestion of calorie-rich diets, and that this disruption is sufficient for the development of obesity. In 2013, Dr. de Lartigue was awarded a NIH K99/R00 Pathways to Independence grant to develop novel techniques to better study gut-brain signaling and determine whether vagal afferent neurons could be targeted for the treatment of obesity. In 2015, Dr. de Lartigue was jointly appointed as an Assistant Fellow at the John B. Pierce Laboratory and Assistant Professor in Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology at the Yale School of Medicine. Research in the de Lartigue lab focuses on defining the role of vagal afferent neurons in health and disease.
