“My research seeks to investigate the molecular mechanisms that govern the process of inflammation in adipose tissue in obesity and how this is involved in the development of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus. My project is mainly focused on the interaction between adipocytes and macrophages. These mechanisms are being studied in visceral adipose tissue of obese patients and adipose tissue of genetically modifed mice.”
