Dr. Laura den Hartigh studies mechanisms by which macronutrients such as glucose and fatty acids influence cellular metabolism in the settings of obesity and weight loss. Her lab uses cell culture models, including adipocytes and monocytes/macrophages, and mouse models of obesity to study the complex interplay between excessive nutrient ingestion, gut microbe health, adipose tissue metabolism, and systemic inflammation.
