Mission Statement

We are interested in fundamental and translational aspects of lipid metabolism in nutrition-related chronic diseases. In particular, how dietary (intestinal) derived lipids and their metabolism contribute to, or alleviate pathways that cause cardiovascular etiology.

We are keen to appreciate how the etiology of early obesity, insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes accelerates CVD complications and influence lipid homeostasis. Our dynamic and vibrant group fosters a supportive research environment for staff/trainees in order to build capacity and facilitate unique inter-disciplinary scientific training.
