Dr. Rozenn Lemaitre is interested in new modifiable lipidomic biomarkers that may influence diabetes incidence, cardiovascular disease and healthy aging. In addition to fatty acid biomarkers of diet, we study lipid biomarkers of metabolism such as sphingolipids and “EETs”, a type of arachidonic acid derivative. We are particularly interested in relating the overall diet quality, and the consumption of specific nutrients and foods, to circulating levels of these new lipids.
