Obesity is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by adipose tissue infiltration with macrophages contributing to the metabolic and cardiovascular complications of obesity. My main area of research concerns the modulation of adipose tissue macrophages phenotype by their lipidome. More specifically, my research will focus on fatty acid signalling and its impact on their polarization status.
