How often have you sat and wondered "Are my metabolism and immune system are linked?"
All the time, right? Well it turns out they are linked, a lot.
At the uOttawa Immunometabolab (see what we did? Immune + Metabolism + Lab = so clever) we use mice and cells as biological models to uncover how specific metabolic and/or immune pathways are linked. Our BIG PICTURE GOALS are to understand how these molecular, metabolic and immune pathways work in hopes that our research will lead to new ways to prevent and treat chronic metabolic diseases.
