Conceptual Schematic

THE THREE MOST SIGNIFICANT QUESTIONS THAT DEFINE YOUR RESEARCH PROGRAM:
What are the biochemical and molecular mechanisms of increased inflammation in metabolic diseases?

What are the mechanisms by which immune cells regulate metabolism in non-immune cells?

Is inflammation the unifying mechanism in diseases of metabolic dysregulation?

FIVE KEYWORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR AREAS OF INTEREST:
metabolic diseases, inflammation/immunology, metabolism, nutrients, liver

TECHNIQUES, MODELS, METHODS, ANALYTIC APPROACHES, ETC:

Mice, obesity studies, in vivo and ex vivo metabolic analysis; biochemical and molecular analysis of metabolic and insulin signaling pathways; flow cytometry
