The group runs a large span of interconnected translational projects to study the immunological and molecular mechanisms in obesity, metabolic disorders, cardiovascular disease and Covid-19; which share many common features. We study the following processes in these conditions to improve our understanding of the underlying ethology and to identify new biomarkers and treatment targets.
- Regulation and role of innate and adaptive immune response
- DNA repair mechanisms and genome stability
- Pain sensitivity and vascular inflammation
- Fish oil supplements and cardiometabolism
