Consitt's research interests involve studying the metabolic properties of skeletal muscle in conditions such as obesity, diabetes and aging. She is particularly interested in elucidating the cellular and molecular mechanisms contributing to skeletal muscle insulin sensitivity and lipid metabolism and the impact that exercise and diet modification may have on these mechanisms.
