Chris Hardin has two principal lines of research in his laboratory. The first is a close examination of the way the human body metabolizes sugar, which Hardin has been examining for twenty years. For the second and more recent project, Hardin seeks to develop a better way to determine whether certain drugs associated with statin-therapy (for high cholesterol) are causing dangerous muscle pain and weakness.
