Dr. Janos Zempleni earned a Ph.D. in nutrition sciences from the Justus-Liebig University in Germany and received postdoctoral training in pediatric nutrition, nutritional biochemistry, and molecular and cell biology in different institutions. Dr. Zempleni joined the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2001 where he rose through the ranks and now is a Willa Cather Professor of Molecular Nutrition and founding director of the NIH-funded Nebraska Center for the Prevention of Obesity Diseases through Dietary Molecules.
The Zempleni lab has a long track record of research in nutrition and epigenetics. His laboratory is interested in natural nanoparticles that play an important role in cell-to-cell communication and the regulation of metabolism. Current focus areas in the Zempleni lab focus on the role of exosomes in human milk in the neurological development in infants, interactions between milk exosomes and the gut microbiome, and the use of milk exosomes in the delivery of drugs.
