My postdoctoral training aims to unravel cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying adipocyte-intrinsic immune/inflammatory potential and the contribution of such inflammation to pathogenesis of obesity-associated metabolic diseases and various infections. Specific focus is on defining how immune mediators modify adipocyte core metabolism; how core metabolism alters adipocyte-intrinsic immune-like capacity/function; and how these pathways in unison propagate disease pathogenesis.
Research Assistant IV
In addition to management of the laboratory and mouse colony, my work focuses on the roles of IL-4 axis, IL-17 axis, Beta-oxidation and mitochondrial function/metabolism in the development and progression of obesity and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
