I am a second year PhD student in the Biomedical Science Department, at the University of Warwick. My research is supervised by Dr Mark Christian and Dr Philip McTernan and is kindly funded by Warwick graduate school. My project is provisionally titled: ‘Pro-/Anti-inflammatory Signalling Pathways in Brown and White Adipocytes’ which explores the inflammation and anti-inflammation and their cross-talk in adipocytes. This is important as manipulation of the TLR4 actions by GPCRs may determine a mechanism to reduce inflammation in adipocytes and improve insulin resistance and related disorders.
