    Research interests

    The immune system is able to control the function of various metabolic organs and contributes to metabolic abnormalities seen in diseases such as obesity and type 2 diabetes. The Brestoff Lab’s research focuses on understanding how immune cells and metabolic organs interact to maintain normal metabolism and to support adaptation to physiologic challenges such as high-fat diet feeding, changes in environmental temperature, and fasting. We employ cutting-edge techniques in immunology, metabolism, and mitochondria biology to study the immunometabolic pathways that are required for metabolic health and that contribute to disease pathogenesis. Ultimately, our goal is to discover novel biological pathways that can be targeted therapeutically or that can be leveraged to develop new diagnostic tests.
