While at UW, his work was focused on developing mouse and cell based models of diet induced obesity to study the regulation of lipid metabolism. Prior to that, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Blood Research Institute in Milwaukee, WI. While at the BRI, Dr. Paton trained with world leaders in coagulation biology working on a project investigating the mechanisms by which fibrin degradation products caused cell death.
